Russia and the Arctic Council
A KAS Nordic Countries Project online discussion

In our online discussion we talk about the Russian Arctic Council Chairmanship Agenda and what are the international expectations for the upcoming chairmanship and the work in the Arctic Council in light of increasing tensions in international politics.

Norway, Greenland, and Iceland in a changing world: Comparing foreign policy opinion polls
A KAS Online Seminar
During 2020 and 2021, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Nordic Countries Project has financed foreign policy opinion polls in Norway, Greenland, and Iceland in cooperation with, respectively, NUPI (the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs), Ilisimatusarfik (the University of Greenland), and the IIA (the Institute of International Affairs at the University of Iceland). The purpose of each opinion poll has been to ask the public in each country about their foreign policy preferences when it comes to their home countries’ international partnerships, trade, and security.
