Book News Annotation:

In 2004, the government of Denmark requested a study by the Danish Institute for International Studies analyzing the change of Greenland from a colony to a full member of the Danish Kingdom in 1954 as directed by a 1953 amendment to the Danish Constitution. Beukel and Frede P. Jensen (1940-2008), both researchers at the Institute, and Jens Elo Rytter (law, U. of Copenhagen) report the findings of that study. Among their topics are Greenland and Denmark before 1945, the development of international law concerning decolonization and self-determination, Danish and Greenland initiatives for a new policy on Greenland 1945-50, the issue in the United Nations at various times, and Greenland on the path to constitutional equality.

Synopsis:

In 2005, the Danish government obliged the wish of the Greenlandic Home Rule administration to commission a historical report on the circumstances surrounding the changed status of Greenland within Denmark following the modification of the Constitution in 1953. This report is presented here in this book by leading specialists in the field, who provide the most comprehensive account to date of Greenland's colonial status in the years 1945-1954. With the Constitution of 1953, the colonial status of Greenland came to an end and the country was made an integral part of Denmark. Greenlanders were granted equal rights as citizens within the Danish realm. In 1954, this new arrangement was supported by an overwhelming majority in the UN General Assembly. The decision to change Greenland's status was conditioned both by internal and external circumstances. In the UN context, Danes increasingly felt the strain of being a colonial power and they also feared the possibility of future UN interferen

Synopsis:

The colonial status of Greenland came to an end following the modification of the Danish Constitution in 1953. In 2005, the Danish government obliged the wish of the Greenlandic Home Rule to commission a historical report detailing the changed status of Greenland within the realm. The report is a significant contribution to the ongoing debates concerning important developments in Danish-Greenlandic relations in the post-war period and provides the most comprehensive account to date of the decolonization of Greenlands status in the years 1945-1954. This book constitutes an important attempt to untangle the many circumstances impinging on the phasing out of Greenlands colonial status.
