Frida Stranne, PhD in Peace and Development Research and senior lecturer in Political Science at our institution, is in Washington, D.C. as the expert commentor on Swedish Svenska Dagbladet newspaper’s panel covering the 2012 U.S. election.
Frida Stranne has studied U.S. foreign policy from 1776 to modern times. She identifies patterns and driving forces in the country's foreign policies that do not solely promote peace and stability but sometimes provoke confrontation and conflict in the world.
"We can't understand U.S. foreign policy without understanding its driving forces throughout history, " she says.
This is the third consecutive presidential election that she has been on hand to observe in Washington, D.C.
