In 2000 he attended the Bilderberg Conference, possibly as a speaker on the subject The European Far Right - Is there a Threat?

In 2021 he compared criticism of the official narrative on Covid, ivermectin ("Ivermectin is an excellent drug, at least as long as you happen to be a horse or a cow or some other livestock") and vaccine passports with "the notion that dinosaurs lived peacefully alongside Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden" [2]

He was most recently Senior Research Associate at the Canadian Center for German and European Studies (CCGES) at York University, Visiting Professor at the University of Geneva and Adjunct Professor at the University of Zurich.
