Dr. Trygve Ugland was educated at University of Oslo and Queen’s University of Belfast (Ph.D. University of Oslo, 2002).

His work has appeared, for example, in the journals Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of Public Policy and Scandinavian Political Studies.


Dr. Ugland's latest book tells the story of how Jean Monnet's encounters with Canada and Canadians between 1907 and 1914 played a vital role, both as inspiration and as enduring reference point, in his project of uniting Europe.
