Tore Eikeland started the bachelor studies at the Department of Comparative Politics in the autumn of 2009. He was supposed to start on his third study year in August.

The Department of Comparative Politics would like to express its sincerest compassion with Tore’s family and friends in this mournful period.

Tore Eikeland was regarded as one of Norway’s most promising young politicians and his commitment, humour and warmth knew few limits. The events at the government buildings in Oslo and at Utøya make it even more important than ever to keep on working actively for human dignity, equality and democracy.
