Øyvind Bugge Solheim


I am a Senior Research Fellow at Institute for Social Research (ISF). I study the Scandinavian right-wing extremism on social media as part of the FREXO-project. Central questions concern the social networks of Scandinavian right-wing extremists, their ideology and their ability to mobilize followers and supporters. In my PhD I studied how terrorist attacks affect attitudes towards immigration and immigrants. I’ve also worked for the secretary to valglovutvalget, the Norwegian Election Act Commission, which presented its report (NOU:2020: 6 Frie og hemmelige valg — Ny valglov) on May 27, 2020.

This page is mainly used to present my research which you’ll find under publications above. In addition, I’ve added some example R-code described in Norwegian inspired by questions from the facebook group for political science students at UiO using R. Finally, I’ve written a few blog posts concerning Norwegian electoral law and the possible consequences of different changes to these laws. As a small Easter egg, the page hosts some simple tables that I use and that may be useful for other Premier League fantasy players as well.
