Lise Klaveness is a Norwegian lawyer and former international footballer. In 2022, she became the first female President of the Norwegian Football Federation (NFF), firmly focused on human rights and equal opportunities for all. She made headlines across the world after speaking out about human rights issues and the need for action at last year’s 72nd FIFA Congress in Doha, Qatar.

To celebrate BI’s 80th anniversary in 2023, BI’s student organisation BISO nominated Klaveness to receive an honorary doctorate.
