See the invitation and sign up here.
Based on Mikkel Underlin Østergaard’s master thesis from Aalborg University Arctic Consensus invites to a presentation and discussion of: “The Greenlandic wish for independence: An investigation of the possibilities within free association”.
Mikkel will present his analyses on how free association has been employed by the United States, New Zealand and their five associated states, how Siumut politicians have employed the concept of free association in the context of independence and finally on which points Denmark may have any contentions on free association. He will further discuss if free association would be possible between Greenland and Denmark. After the presentation, Arctic Consensus will host a debate based on the presentation.
Please note that the event will be held in Danish, and questions are welcome to be asked both in Danish and English.
It is possible to participate online. If you wish to participate online, you will receive an email with further instructions soon after your registration.
