  • The Extractive Industries Group is founded by Pelle Tejsner and Vladimir Pacho Cuevo from the Arctic Research Center (ARC), and includes colleagues from Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA), Danish Center for Environment and Energy (DCE) and Aarhus Institute for Advanced Studies (AIAS). The group has received funding from the Anthropology Program at the School of Culture and Society for doing a one day workshop on the key interdisciplinary challenges and human security issues associated with resource extraction in the Arctic. The workshop took place September 6, 2016 at Moesgård. Read more about the workshop here and the group here


  • The ARC is participating in a study titled “Arctic Training” commissioned by the European Defence Agency and led by Wise Pens International. The study has received funding for activities in 2016 and 2017. The aim is to provide recommendations on the establishment of a European training platform to prevent risks and provide response to disasters arising from changing Arctic conditions (e.g. weather, sea ice, ocean…) and new activities (industrial, shipping, tourism, oil…). Cécile Pelaudeix  is leader of the WP 1.
