We collaborated with Brown University, Portland State University, University of Iowa and University of Alaska Fairbanks to bring together members of the Arctic social science and indigenous communities to reassess the goals, potentials, and needs of these diverse communities and ASSP within the context of a rapidly changing circumpolar North.
Foreseeing the future of Arctic social science research
A series of five topical and regional workshops held across the country and among the five partner organizations, bringing together approximately 150 western and indigenous scholars to discuss the future of Arctic social science research.
The results of the workshops and on-line input will be compiled at a final synthesis workshop with a report produced to describes the community's vision for the future of Arctic social science research. This re-envisioning process will help shape future Arctic social science research and inform Arctic economic, environmental, and political policy development.
