Leadership Team

The Arctic Institute’s Leadership Team is headed by Managing Director Victoria Herrmann. Along with Malte Humpert, Marc Jacobsen, Kathrin Stephen, Andreas Raspotnik, and Andreas Østhagen, the Leadership Team guides the organization’s research agenda and advances the Institute’s mission to better inform Arctic policy. It focuses on the strategic direction of the Institute’s global network of scholars by developing new initiatives, partnerships, and events. Dedicated to a hybrid of consensus-based and collaborative leadership, the Team manages all development, communications, and editorial operations of the Institute, which allows Senior Fellows, Research Associates and Interns to focus on critical analysis of the North.
