Arctic ahead!
EU, Greenland and Finnmark

For people living in sparsely populated areas like Hammerfest future job security is of the utmost importance. However, perhaps more than anything else here, the lesson of history is that there are no guarantees even if the resources are more or less just outside your door.

In other words, that globalisation is a constant process proceeding at different speeds.
