On research, impact, and public relations in the ’empty’ north

Some of my first posts on the RHUL Geopolitics & Security blog were in the context of the RHUL-based European Commission fellowship that began right when the G&S programme was also starting up. Taking things full circle, in my blogpost On research, impact, and public relations in the ’empty’ north I reflect on how the European Commission described the project and what this tells us about the culture of research, the ‘impact’ agenda, and popular perceptions of the Arctic as a space without people or agency.
