Towards electric aviation in the Kvarken region
Professor Lars Westin, CERUM Umeå Universit


We will also acknowledge the 2021 Gösta Skolglund International Foundations’ prize for best undergraduate thesis in regional science. This year the prize is awarded Sania Dzalbe for her thesis “Spatial visibility of Greenlanders in Aalborg Denmark” supervised by Associate Professor Madeleine Eriksson at the Department of Geography at Umeå University.
Sania will present her prize awarding thesis at a CERUM/RSAS seminar June 10, see below.
Prize motivation:
The thesis Spatial visibility of Greenlanders in Aalborg Denmark by Sania Dzalbe focuses on equitable spatial planning practices, more specifically how spatial planning has the capacity to shape the everyday experiences of people, and thus empower and discourage certain behaviors. The thesis which explores the spatial visibility of the Greenlandic community in Aalborg (North Jutland, DK), show how certain perceptions of urban communities and places materialize may lead to social segregation and exclusion in cities. The thesis brings attention to the social effects of increasing urbanization and regional mobility as well as the future of human-environment interaction in the context of spatial planning.
