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.

Comparing Norwegian, Greenlandic and Icelandic foreign policy opinion polls

With the recent publication of the Icelandic study, time has come to try to compare the results of the three studies and reach conclusions of common relevance for Norway, Greenland, Iceland, Europe, and the wider world. What is, for instance, each country’s standpoint when it comes to increased Chinese international influence and foreign investments? And how does each country weigh its relationships with the US and the European Union? 

 

Joining us will be one author from each research institute involved, who will present their findings before a panel discussion where questions from the audience will be discussed. 

 

We welcome you to join our live discussion on Zoom (register here) or on Facebook Live (find the event here)! 

 

A recorded version of the discussion will later be shared on the KAS Nordic Countries Project YouTube channel (which you ca find here).
