The Danish Connection

The new docu-series that has shocked the nation, the coming European Parliament election, and Copenhagen University’s landmark move to divest from Israeli companies.

This week we discuss the scandalous new Danish documentary series Den Sorte Svane (The  Black Swan) that’s got everyone talking, what you need to know about the EU elections, the new  island being built in Copenhagen and the university halting investment to companies in the West Bank amid student protests.

All this, plus cultural tips and hot-takes on the week’s  headlines. 

This is our first episode in collaboration with The Copenhagen Post – the only Danish news media in English – and we will be featuring a lot of their stories (as well as stories from other outlets) from now on. 

This is your place to share enquiries, opinions and tales of the immigrant experience in Denmark.
