Denmark in the Arctic  

The presence of Denmark in the Arctic depends on its authority over the semi-autonomous territory of Greenland. This is a costly relationship for Denmark. Therefore, Jon Rahbek-Clemmensen asks what Denmark gains from this relationship and why Greenland accepts this situation. He argues that the Danish presence in Greenland is part of a wider foreign policy strategy and that Denmark plays a complex three-way game in order to stay present in the Arctic. So, Greenland ensures Denmark’s geopolitical leverage for only a minor economic investment.
