The award committee’s statement highlights:

  • She has been a driving force in the development and implementation of the Master’s programme in International Community Health.
  • She has made extraordinary efforts to develop an international and multicultural learning culture, and thus helped ensure that international students succeed in completing a challenging course of study.
  • She has also played a key role in building a community-oriented study culture and ensuring integration of numerous students from a variety of cultural backgrounds. She teaches topics that occasionally may be controversial with wisdom and involvement, showing concern and respect for different traditions, while also challenging the students to reflect on their culturally determined mindsets and practices.
