Kjetil Børhaug has published extensively on issues of the relationship between school curricula and political and democratic legitimacy in Norway. Dr. Børhaug examines how the educational system can be seen as a reflection of dominant ways of thinking about the political, economic and legal order and how it legitimizes the existing political order, especially in times of national stress, such as the terrorist attacks of July 22, 2011.
