End of September, the Fulbright Arctic Initiative III (FAI III) scholars met in Canada for a meeting in Edmonton and Inuvik to present group projects and policy briefs.

During the Fulbright Arctic Initiative III (FAI III) meeting, Lill Rastad Bjørst, Associate Professor, University of Aalborg, and one of our two Danish Fulbright grantees, presented on: Greenland in the Green Transition. A Shift in the Political Discourse regarding Greenland’s Development.

FAI III works on three main themes: Infrastructure, Health, and Security. The two Danish participants are respectively involved in the Infrastructure and the Security groups with colleagues from the other Arctic nations. The 18 month research program brings together professionals, practitioners, and researchers from the United States, Canada, The Kingdom of Denmark including Greenland and the Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, and Sweden for group seminars and an individual exchange to address key research and policy questions related to fostering a secure and sustainable Arctic.

A FAI IV is expected, but has not yet been officially announced. Likely the main themes may change, but read more about the program here.
