Graduate Fellow

Kathleen Rankin is a recent graduate of Queen’s University who holds an MA in Political Studies. Her Master’s Research Project analyzed the overlooked non-traditional power resources available to Denmark in conflict resolution in the Arctic sphere against aggressor states like China and Russia. Her research interests stem from previous research completed during her undergraduate degree at St. Thomas University, on Danish territorial disputes in the Arctic. This research contributed to a seminar series titled “The Arctic in Asia, Asia in the Arctic: Future Discourses and Best Practices” presented by the Barents Institute at the University of Tromsø The Arctic University of Norway, hosted by Hokkaido University in Hokkaido, Japan. 

In her role with NAADSN, Kathleen’s research will be centered on security and defence issues in Greenland, under the supervision of Dr. Wilfred Greaves.
