China as an Arctic Great Power. Potential Implications for Greenland and the Danish Realm

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewFAK publikationsserier

In late January 2018, China released its long-awaited White Paper on China’s Arctic Policy. It represents the culmination of the development of a more confident, proactive and sophisticated Chinese diplomacy in the Arctic and reflects how the Arctic has moved up the Chinese leaders’ foreign and security policy agenda and is assigned increasing strategic significance. The policy brief analyses China’s Arctic White Paper focusing on the potential implications for Greenland and the Danish Realm. The policy brief concludes that China’s increasing presence in the Arctic constitutes a challenge as well as an opportunity depending on whether Copenhagen and Nuuk are able to find stronger common ground in their approach to China in the Arctic and succeed in establishing open, respectful and constructive dialogue and cooperation on this matter.
