Presentation

Christoph Houman Ellersgaard is an assistant professor at the Department of Business and Politics partly funded by a grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research. The project ‘Tied up?

His work on Danish elites with Anton Grau Larsen has received wide public interest and he has given numerous public talks to a wide array of audiences – ranging from political parties, social movements, organisations, corporations or just public events – about the Danish power elite, as he chose to describe the 423 people in the core of the Danish network.
