Évènement en ligne via ZOOM (in English only)

Conférencière : Sara Olsvig, PhD Fellow at Ilisimatusarfik

This presentation will give an insight to how Greenland has gradually widened its self-determination and international relations through the development of Home Rule and Self-Government. In times of Great Power Competition and increased attention from the U.S., Greenland is navigating the icy waters of enhanced security related developments in the Arctic. Decision-making structures are challenged and with a general election to be held on April 6th, 2021, Greenland is standing at a cross-road on a wide range of issues.

Sara Olsvig is a Ph.D. Fellow at Ilisimatusarfik, the University of Greenland, and the current chairwoman of Greenland's Human Rights Council. Olsvig is an assigned member of the Constitutional Commission of Greenland. She served as member of the Parliament of Denmark (2011 - 2015) and the Parliament of Greenland (2013 - 2018) and was leader of the political party Inuit Ataqatigiit (2014 – 2018). Olsvig holds an MSc in Anthropology and has previously worked as Executive Dire ctor for Inuit Circumpolar Council Greenland, to which she today is a delegate.
