Researchers: Policy-making related to the Arctic needs a new mindset

‘Solutions to common human security issues must be contextual at the local level, and address the unique concerns of diverse identities within communities,’ state researchers in the final report of the HuSArctic project. The main objective of the four-year project in 2015–2018 is to address human challenges of the Arctic population and to find tools to improve human security within Barents region. The project is funded by the Academy of Finland and hosted by the Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law, which is part of the Arctic Centre at the University of Lapland.

The second workshop on Food (in)Security in the Arctic was held in Umeå, Sweden.

This was the second workshop in which participants discussed the progress of their research and presented drafts of chapters’ contribution.
