I am currently writing my doctoral thesis on the justifications of Finnish political actors, export companies and Christian missionary societies' regarding relations with Southern African states in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The main purpose is to answer the question of why relations with African states were wanted to be established and what were the reasons to justify them for themselves and others. Additionally, the research examines how national and international changes influenced on the premises.
