Since 2014, the Arctic Politics Research Seminars have engaged a broad range of scholars from the social sciences and humanities in discussions on themes ranging from geopolitics via negotiations in the Danish 'community of the realm' to Greenlandic nation building. Papers for the seminars are circulated one week in advance, so that the seminars may proceed on the assumption that all participants have read the papers. Hence, the papers are not presented as such - only a brief contextualization is given. The seminars are now co-convened by CIRCLA (Aalborg University) and the Arctic Politics research group (University of Copenhagen). Venues alternate between Aalborg University Campus Copenhagen in Sydhavnen and University of Copenhagen City Campus at Kommunehospitalet. The seminars are open for all scholars, but please sign up here to receive papers in advance or to join the mailing list.
Special issue celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Greenland's Self-Government
On 21 June 2019, the Greenland Self-Government celebrates its 10-year anniversary. At the same time, it has been 40 years since the Home Rule was introduced. To mark these events, the journal Politik has published a special issue with interdisciplinary insights by some of Greenland’s brightest minds reflecting on the historic development and the road to (more) self-determination.
