Media and innovation (Vietnam)
Vietnam is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and has a quick growing number of internet users. The media landscape is transforming rapidly to digital media plattforms. Together with a group of researchers and journalists in Vietnam and Sweden we are working on increasing the numbers of media innovations in the digital context in Vietnam.
In December 2016 we arranged a conference together with Embassy of Sweden in Hanoi and the Ministry for Information and Communication in Vietnam.

Agent orange in vietnam
Agent Orange is the herbicide that was used by the U.S. military during Vietnam War. It is estimated that 4 million Vietnamese citizens were exposed to it – and as many as 3 million have suffered illnesses because of it. Still, over 40 years after the war ended children are being born with severe birth defects because of the herbicide.
Andreas has travelled to various places in southern Vietnam since 2012 to meet the survivors and those who lives with the consequences from the war time.
