The development of journalism in Vietnam

As part of his ongoing Ph.D. project at the University of Helsinki, Andreas conducts research on the development of journalism in Vietnam in relation to journalism culture, social norms, and technology. 

Sweden-south Asia media project

The Sweden–South Asia Media Project aims to study and report on the growing digital media landscape in South Asia and link these results together with the development of the Swedish media landscape. The project was initiated by the South Asia Studies Network (SASNET) at Lund University in Sweden in 2015.

Agent Orange

Agent Orange is the herbicide that was used by the U.S. military during the 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 traveled to various places in southern Vietnam since 2012 to meet the survivors and those who live with the consequences of wartime.
