USA – superpower in crisis

The experienced journalist couple Eva Bratholm and Joar Hoel Larsen have worked with politics and social issues for a number of years. Both have been NRK correspondents in the USA and they have written various books on American issues as well as other central contemporary themes.

Bratholm and Hoel Larsen are now retired and hold lectures about events they themselves have been part of, experienced or covered as reporters, correspondents and commentators. They like to put their own experiences into a current context, often with a twinkle in their eye and carry out a thorough analysis of what may happen in the future.

In addition to working at NRK, Eva Bratholm has, among other things, worked for Dagbladet and was the newspaper's correspondent in New York. In recent years, she has been associated with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as director of communications in NORAD.

Joar Hoel Larsen has also been a correspondent for NRK in Latin America for two periods, as well as a two-year period as an NRK employee in India.
