Honorary doctorate

During the annual celebration, the honorary doctorate was again awarded. This year, Ilisimatusarfik was proud to award this honor to Bishop Sofie Petersen.

Bishop Sofie Petersen is awarded the honorary doctorate, because of the great importance she has had for the development of Greenland's church and culture - as well as for Greenland's international commitment. In addition, in many contexts, Bishop Sofie Petersen has been a church voice - sometimes sharply - in the public debate.
