Podcast “Cuckoo’s Nest” – guest Ms. Karin Hernmarck Ahliny, Ambassador of Sweden in Kosovo

She began her career in diplomacy in 1994. She visited Kosovo in 2000 and 2004, and now, 15 years later, she is the Swedish ambassador in Pristina. Her name is Karin Hernmarck, she completed her law studies, and between her stays, in Kosovo, she worked in South Africa. What has changed in Kosovo in the past 15 years, where it still lags behind the rest of the world? What should we look up to the Swedes? Where do they get so much trust in institutions and why is there no such thing here? What is the essence of the “Swedish model” of fighting the pandemic? How did Sweden, instead of coercion, rely on the trust of the citizens to act in accordance with the recommendations of the competent authorities? What are the real benefits of gender equality for society? These are just some of the topics we discussed with Hernmarck. Listen to more about that, but also to the differences in mentality, culture, and views on the development of society from the point of view of a Swedish woman in the new episode of our podcast.
