It’s a first in a series of events aimed opening up a public space for an informed debate on Northern Norway as a global hub for military intelligence in a political climate of increasingly polarized rhetoric and arms races in space and at sea.
Barents Press Sweden with the assistance of Barents Press Russia and Barents Regional Youth Council is arranging a new type of project where the focus is on young journalists in the Barents region. The project is made possible with the financial assistance by the Swedish Instiute and Länsstyrelsen Norrbotten.
Norwegian childcare have made headlines in a lot of countries during the last years, not least in Russia. What is it all about? How can there be so different opinions about children´s rights, parents rights and the difference between violence and upbringing?
