She often participates in TV and radio programs and holds lectures at colleges and universities, business conferences and church events, as well as in public debates.
Educated at the University of Oslo, Herland has written several books, among which is the bestseller Alarm! Reflections on a culture in crisis (Luther Publishing House 2010) and the recent bestseller Respect. ( Orfeus Publishing 2012).
Herland emphasizes that it is vital for European culture to uphold its cultural roots in facing the globalized world, and that each culture should determine its own values without outside interference. She has written extensively about the need for respect for ethics and religious values in society, as well as the importance of individual freedom in democratic states. She states that the Western culture is sliding towards decay due to its overly energetic push away from traditional values, precisely the ideas that once made the West such a great civilization.
She was strongly against the Libya-war in 2011 as well as US and NATO interference in Syria. According to Herland, each country should be a sovereign national state which should have the right to solve its own problems without interference from foreign countries. She is famously known for having said: NATO has gone from being a transatlantic defense organization to an aggressive political alliance which attacks weak states wherever Western interests are threatened.
