Marc Jacobsen is a Senior Fellow and Leadership Group member at The Arctic Institute. His research and writing mainly focus on Arctic security politics and strategies of the Kingdom of Denmark, with particular focus on the emerging opportunities and challenges to the Danish-Greenlandic relationship.
Marc is also a PhD Candidate at the University of Copenhagen’s Political Science Department, where he researches the dynamics of identity, sustainability, and rights change in the Arctic. He also teaches courses and supervises MA theses involving the Arctic region, International Relations theories and discourse analysis.
Together with Victoria Hermann, he has edited a special issue about ‘Arctic International Relations in a Widened Security Perspective’ (POLITIK, 3, 2017). He has authored several articles about Greenland and Denmark’s role in the Arctic – i.a. ‘Setting the scene in Nuuk: introducing the cast of characters in Greenlandic foreign policy narratives’ (co-authored with Ulrik Pram Gad, Routledge 2017), and ‘The Power of Collective Identity Narration: Greenland’s Way to a more Autonomous Foreign Policy’ (Arctic Yearbook, 2015).
Marc holds a Master’s degree in International Relations from University of Westminster and a Master’s degree in Political Communication and Management from Copenhagen Business School. The former focused broadly on Arctic security discourses since 1945, while the latter was written on Greenland’s foreign affairs since 2009.
