The talk series is named in honor of Erling Olsen (1927-2011), founding board member of the University of the Arctic, Member of the Danish Parliament for almost 30 years, twice Minister, and Speaker of the Danish Parliament. When, as Minister of Justice, he was asked whether he was a dove or a hawk his reply was that he would be an owl.
