Helge Ole Bergesen died on 29th of June, from cancer. He worked for the Fridtjof Nansen Institute from 1979 to 2006, except his term as State Secretary from 2001 to 2005. In 2006 he became the first Research Director at the University of Stavanger.
We mourn the loss of a dedicated and inspiring scholar, a free spirit, and a close friend and colleague.
