Marc Jacobsen

Researcher, Danish Institute for International Studies



I am a Researcher at Danish Institute for International Studies where I do research on Arctic diplomacy and security politics. My current project - which is funded by the Carlsberg Foundation - investigates how changing security dynamics affect the relationship between Denmark and Greenland, and how their respective diplomats navigate in the region.

Together with Ulrik Pram Gad and Ole Wæver, I have edited a book titled Greenland in Arctic security: (de)securitization dynamics under climatic thaw and geopolitical freeze, which University of Michigan Press will publish in late 2022.

I obtained my PhD in Political Science from University of Copenhagen in 2019. Since then, I have worked as post.doc at University of Cambridge, Senior Fellow at The Arctic Institute and as External Lecturer at University of Greenland.
