Professor Eivind Engebretsen is appointed Circle U Chair of Global Health


Eivind Engebretsen has been appointed as Chair of Global Health at the European University Alliance Circle U, with the mission to explore the interface between global health and democracy.

Professor Engebretsen’s chair covers two thematic areas, global health and democracy, and explores the interface between them. More specifically, he aims to interrogate the global ambition that underpins the sustainable development paradigm in global health by exploring some of the core concepts on which the agenda is based, such as sustainability, well-being, equity, partnership and empowerment.

The overall mission is to design and test a corpus-assisted datathon model for student-led, empirically informed debate of key concepts in the sustainability agenda.
