Vesa Väätänen

Doctoral researcher

Faculty of Science

I am a PhD student at the Geography Research Unit, and my key research interest is in political geography. My doctoral research focuses on the political geographies of the Arctic region and the multifarious political dimensions inherent in regionalization processes. These dimensions include power relations in supranational political space, spatial politics of sub-national political actors, and the intersection of geopolitics/geoeconomics in supranational state strategies.
