Global Europeans makes living easier for you who live and work internationally by providing these targeted services:
Proofreading, language checking, translation and writing services. Work with academic writing, travel writing and other commercial content.
Market research, scientific research and qualitative analysis. Areas of expertise include migration & mobility, social exclusion, social policy, intercultural affairs, growth economies, globalization & citizenship. Regional expertise: the Nordic region, UK and Asia.
Practical help for foreigners in Denmark. I fill in the gaps left behind by your relocation agent, employer and the authorities. Aimed at migrants (new & old) who can communicate using basic English, German, Spanish, French or Italian.
Life in contemporary society is so complex and very often so busy that occasionally living gets sidelined. The ultimate goal of Global Europeans is to make the lives of international people, organizations and companies easier by providing language, research and relocation services.
Global Europeans was originally a platform for communicating my PhD project, which focused on the lives of Danish and Finnish temporary migrants in India. After finishing in June 2015, I decided to re-invent Global Europeans and pursue an independent career doing the work that I enjoy.

After more than 16 years in Denmark, 17 May 2016 was the first time that I stepped foot inside the Danish Parliament, Christiansborg. I took part in the #FLYGT2016 conference organized by the University of Copenhagen. The presenters were researchers from the dry faculties of university (Law, Social Science, Theology and the Humanities), high ranking[…]
If one only takes note of the extremist, discriminatory and inhumane measures taken by the current government to deter asylum seekers from coming to Denmark and make their lives even more miserable when they are here, it would seem that people fleeing war and destitution and arriving in today’s Denmark do not have much to[…]
When I moved to Denmark in the nineties, there was greater financial stability in Europe and greater stability in the Danish labour market. However, the challenges of finding work in wonderful Copenhagen as a newcomer who did not speak Danish were different to today. English was not the lingua franca within organizations, hence job opportunities[…]
Today, the third Monday in January, is known as Blue Monday, “the most miserable day of the year”. According to Paula Jarzabkowski in her article in The Conversation “The combination of being fed up with winter, the grim aftermath of Christmas spending, and the back-to-work blues supposedly reach[es] a head on the third Monday of[…]
Aside from the debates regarding immigration, integration and diversity, Denmark and Copenhagen receive so much positive press about the things they do well – welfare benefits and services, design, bike culture, New Nordic Cuisine etc. What do we NOT hear about? Here is some trivia that you may not know: You probably already know that[…]
One of the striking traits of the majority of Danes in Copenhagen is the confidence they show in using spoken English. In 2006, there was a proposal by the Radical Liberal Party to make English the second official language in Denmark. In spite of support from the major business organizations that already use English as[…]
Recently Jan Bremen gave a public lecture at the University of Copenhagen on the rise of the informal economy in the ‘West’. At this and another seminar I attended relating to informal employment, experts in social research suggested that the phenomenon is practically non-existent in Denmark. Perhaps the root of this belief lies in the[…]
On my way to a conference, The Boundaries of Working Life, hosted by LabourNet at the University of Tampere in Finland, I came across an article about an initiative in Estonia that, for businesses and business owners worldwide, transgresses some of the boundaries of working life. Estonia is “the first country in the world offering e-residency[…]
I was recently asked to help some foreigners with their application for child benefit; their children live in another EU/EEA country. The people I am helping do not speak Danish or English and their employers who are supposed to help them with such matters don’t. They simply tell them that they need to contact the[…]
On 18 December 2014 the Danish parliament agreed on new rules regarding dual citizenship. Next week, on 1 September 2015, Danish people and many others in the international community will be celebrating a new law on dual citizenship coming into force. Danes will now be able to acquire a second passport without having to renounce their Danish one,[…]
