Abstract

What makes the Greenland society vulnerable is an rather open question, which is discussed through a number of examples of how vulnerabilities have been defined and handled throughout the history of this area. Especially the role of profesionals and of politics in defining the vulnerabilities is the core of the analysis leading to questions about contemporary constructions of economic growth and dependencies.
