I am Eirik Lokke, a Fellow at the Norwegian liberal think tank, Civita. I use this blog to share my latest thoughts, where I tend to advocate classical liberal ideas and policy.
I was born in Stavanger, Norway (1980) and after finishing my mandatory year in the Norwegian armed forces; I began my studies at the University of Bergen (UiB), where I earned a B.A. in Comparative politics and a M.A. in History.
Before joining Civita, I worked as a teacher at UiB, campaign advisor for the conservative party and as a digital advisor for UNICEF.
I am a former leader of the Student Society (Studentersamfunnet i Bergen) in Bergen, where I currently serve at the advisory board. I am a frequent contributor to the Norwegian conservative quarterly, Minerva, where I am a member of the advisory board.
I have commented and been published in all the major Norwegian media corporations (NRK, TV2, Aftenposten, VG, Dagbladet, Dagens Næringsliv, Bergens Tidende, Stavanger Aftenblad).
