The large-scale project GeoPolitics in the High North, Norwegian Interests (GEOPOLITIKK-NORD) was recently concluded. The results of five years of research were summarised at this year’s Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø recently.
Some 40 researchers from 10 Norwegian and international institutions have been affiliated with the project, which has been headed by the Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies. Rolf Tamnes has served as the project manager and Kristine Offerdal as the research coordinator.
The GEOPOLITIKK-NORD project has been funded by the Research Council of Norway with allocations from the Government’s Barents 2020 initiative. The total budget has been approximately NOK 25 million.
