Nasiffik - Centre for Foreign & Security Policy is a new research centre at Ilisimatusarfik that keeps a close eye on the world around it, which has increasingly turned its attention to Greenland and the Arctic. The purpose of establishing a locally based research centre on Arctic foreign and security policy is to collect, analyse and disseminate knowledge on, among other things, Greenlandic foreign policy as well as diplomacy and low tension in the Arctic. This will be done against the backdrop of changing geopolitical dynamics and climate change.
Nasiffik (observation post) wants to be a significant and active player in research in the field of foreign and security policy. Through local anchoring and cooperation with foreign actors, the vision is to develop analytically based and/or solution-focused knowledge and to share knowledge with different target groups locally and internationally.
