Research group on Arctic Politics

Since 2014, the "Arctic Politics" WIP-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. If you want to participate, present a paper or join the mailing list, please contact Axel Eriksson, mail:

The ambition of the research group is to be a central hub in a network with researchers at other institutions conducting research in and on Greenland and the Arctic. The core instrument in relation to this ambition is a series of seminars on Arctic Politics hosted by the research group.
