The shelter in Iceland's foreign relations

Discussing my research on the history of Iceland's foreign relations on Icelandic National Radio. The research examines Iceland's foreign relations from the viewpoint of small state theory in political science and asks the question: Did Iceland enjoy economic, political and societal shelter through its foreign relations? Two papers have already been published:

Iceland’s external affairs in the Middle Ages: The shelter of Norwegian sea power

Iceland’s External Affairs from 1400 to the Reformation: Anglo-German Economic and Societal Shelter in a Danish Political Vacuum, with Þorsteinn Kristinsson

and the next one, on Iceland's relations with Denmark, is forthcoming.
