About the project
Our ambition is to find an international viewpoint to the anniversary, and we hope to get students interested in writing about when their great-grandmothers and great-great-great-grandmothers or people living in Norway today gained the right to vote and how political rights have been put to use in Norway, Sweden, Pakistan, India, Vietnam and so on.
This will generate new knowledge in 2013. Under the auspices of the schools section of the Norwegian Historical Association (HIFO), there is a tradition of inviting students at lower and upper secondary school to enter project competitions. The pupils can use bachelor’s and master’s dissertations from UiO as background material.
