When the 2009 Act granting Greenland self-government was passed, giving the territory full authority over its natural resources, a complex and mixed legal system was introduced within the "Commonwealth of the Realm", which includes Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. This system has been further complicated by Denmark´s membership and Greenland´s non-membership of the European Union. Much of the debate today on Greenland´s uranium potential is focused on clarifying issues of competence and authority between Greenland and Denmark, the aim being to move beyond the notion of "zero tolerance" to developing concrete legislative and regulatory measures.
