The Copenhagen Fellowship centers around a pivotal example of civil society acting in defense of human rights: the flight and rescue of Danish Jews during World War II. Today, Denmark is still seen as a paragon of the successful progressive society: a beacon of wealth, happiness, and equality. The Copenhagen Fellowship investigates these narratives to reveal more complicated truths.
In 2022 – the third year in a row – the Fellowship explores the special theme: Unity of the Realm and Human Rights. Copenhagen Fellows will dig into Denmark’s displacement of its own colonial history; its complicated historical control over Greenland and the Faroe Islands; and geopolitical interests – such as the US’, Russia’s and China’s – in the Arctic and its consequences for the people of the North Atlantic. During our three weeks in Copenhagen, Fellows will also investigate contemporary Human Rights issues in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, and meet with a wide range of experts from academia and journalism, over politics to activism.
We look forward to seeing you there!
