Svalbard-politics as a social system: which interests prevail and why?
In my thesis I will map the central actors, structures and power sources in Norwegian Svalbard politics. Through case-studies of political processes related to some recent resource conflicts, I will further analyze which interests prevails and why. I am interested in power relations, dynamics and mechanisms in relation to this.
Planned fieldwork periods on Svalbard: tentatively August-September 2022
