Agne Cepinskyte recently completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA) in Helsinki and Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) in Berlin. During the fellowship, I focused on security issues in the Arctic, including a security dilemma in the region, policies of the Arctic and non-Arctic states, and the rights of indigenous peoples. My research has been published as both in-house policy briefings and external articles in the Arctic Yearbook and the Arctic Institute.
