För andra veckan i rad organiserade “Kommittén för demokratins försvar” (Komitet Obrony Demokracji, KOD) demonstration för att protestera mot hur den nya PiS-regeringen försöker att undergräva konstitutionsdomstolens (TKs) makt. Förra veckan samlades kanske 50000 personer utanför TK i Warszawa (reportage av SRs Thella Jonsson här), och idag var vi upp […]
All saints’ day in Poland means millions of people visiting the cemeteries, adorning the graves with flowers and grave lights. The picture above was taken leaving the shutter open as I was walking past the local cemetery. A picture of graves at night. Note the grave in the centre. It’s […]
This time tbt takes us back a year – to a lovely autumn day… … and two years, to a day on the beach on more southerly latitudes.

Over the last few years our institute has started sending out more professional press notes about recent research we have published. It has earned the institute some space in media. I am a little divided about these kind of press releases, since they tend to hype the research a bit […]
Yesterday I lied to a priest. I did it to avoid an argument, and I felt bad about it. Not because I was lying to a priest, but because I felt the need to lie. I’m an atheist, and I never had any problems with saying so, or even vocally […]
Titeln lät väl mer dramatisk än nödvändigt – jag tänker inte sluta att åka till bergen. Det jag skall sluta med är att åka dit för att klättra långa leder. Tre gånger har jag varit iväg nu… Ingen gång har det gått precis enligt planerna. Första gången var det sådan […]
