A new and amended § 100 was introduced in the aftermath of the 1999 report (in 2004) of the Norwegian Commission of Freedom of Expression (1996–1999). In this article, Sindre Bangstad explores the recent application of § 135(a) by higher Norwegian courts, along with the shifting historical understandings of freedom of expression and its limits. He argues that these shifting understandings have played a role in the manner in which higher Norwegian courts have applied this paragraph.

On the anniversary of the terrorist attack on 22/7 2011, Sindre Bangstad has written a summary of the trial and the public discussion attached to it.  – This much is clear, he writes: the now thirty-three year old Anders Behring Breivik has already lost the battle to shape the future of multicultural Norway. And we will say this again and again: history does not – and never will - absolve anyone for human evil of the kind perpetrated against innocent children, women and men in Norway.

The key focus for Susanne Brandtstädter, Peter Wade and Kath Woodward is the conjuncture in which culture – claims of a collective distinction concerning heritage, location, moralities and values – has become the terrain of political struggles over the subject of rights in national and international politics, the re-allocation of entitlements, definitions of value, and new forms of political representation.

Signe Howell is arguing that the Chewong’s understanding of causality in human existence has no conceptual room for luck or fortune. Metaphysically derived knowledge is applied in daily and ritual practice, ensuring a life that, ideally, is prosperous and devoid of unwanted or dangerous events. In egalitarian Chewong society, every person is responsible for the correct application of this knowledge for the benefit of oneself and others. The premise for well-being is dependent upon the relationship between every individual Chewong man and woman and the numerous conscious beings that populate their environment. Sociality can be understood only from this perspective.

Susanne Brandtstädter argues that,  where the realities of market liberalisation and governing through law are experienced as corruption, feudal superstition recreates the conditions to realise liberated peasant subjects: a participatory local public sphere, political visibility, investments in the public good, and a new collective property.

Unni Wikan has spent more time in sustained fieldwork in more societies than any other anthropologist whom I know, and these essays are the connective tissue among her most substantial work. They demonstrate her theoretical acuity in defining an approach that always places human experience first. As a result, she develops attractive, balanced, pragmatic views of culture, relativism, and the tendency in cultural anthropology, at least, to emphasize difference over the coherence of human experience in whichever culture and society it is engaged. They are exemplars and a test, as well, of just that approach which understands that common humanity is to be found anywhere, though complicated by distinctive cultural orientations to the expression of personhood.

I 1988 publiserte Elisabeth L’orange Fürst den banebrytende studien Kvinner i Akademia, der hun fant et mønster som tydet på at kvinner ble utsatt for forskjellsbehandling i ansettelsen til vitenskapelige stillinger i akademia. Det var ikke like populært overalt. I dette essayet, et noe bearbeidet muntlig foredrag, forteller Fürst om reaksjoner hun fikk – og om refleksjoner hun har gjort seg i ettertid.

Jon Henrik Ziegler Remme diskuterer hvordan ba’i blant ifugao,Filippinene, ikke er stabile ontologiske entiteter, men veksler mellom to måter å eksistere på: potensialitet og aktualitet.  Korrekte relasjoner til ba'i er livsviktig for mennekskene og kan bare håndteres gjennom å inngå i utvekslinsrelasjoner med dem. Utveksling av griser og andre offer mellom mennesker og ba’i  foregår i ritualer hvor ba’iene blir aktualisert som empirisk tilstedeværende personer. På denne måten skapes en felles sosialitet mellom mennekser og ba’i.
