Summer school in Nuuk: The Politics of Maritime Security in the Arctic

University of Copenhagen is facilitating a summer course on the politics of maritime security in the Arctic. The politics of maritime security is high on the political agenda, and seen as a key concern for the future development of the Arctic region. The goal is to facilitate an understanding of how safety and security is organized and regulated regionally, nationally and locally in the Arctic in general.

The summer school will take place at the University of Greenland, because of the unique access to a wide range of public policy decision-makers involved in societal security. We aim to establish a varied combination of teaching forms with a strong focus on engagement with practitioners within the field of maritime security.

The course takes place in August 12-25 and is a collaboration between Ilisimatusarfik, the University of Greenland, Memorial University of Newfoundland and University of Copenhagen.
