The purpose of the JUSTNORTH Policy Lab is to disucss policy, regulatory and governance options and recommendations that could facilitate a more just and more sustainable economic developments in the Arctic. The focus will be on the areas and sectors where the European Union could contribute to the more just governance of the Arctic.
The workshop will bring together EU policymakers, Arctic stakeholders, rightsholders and decisionmakers and JUSTNORTH researchers.
The Policy Lab will be conducted as a moderated discussion rather than an academic seminar. JUSTNORTH researchers will lead the deliberations, building on the outputs of JUSTNORTH case studies relevant for policy and regulatory landscape governing the Arctic, as captured in the set of policy briefs. We have identified challenges and gaps in pursuing just economic activities in the Arctic and brought together various ideas that can ultimately lead towards recommendations. Such ideas will serve us only as starting points for the co-creation of recommendations through the dialogue with Arctic stakeholders, rightsholders and decision-makers.

JUSTNORTH project is exploring the perspectives and values that stakeholders can bring to Arctic economic decision-making. It is funded by the EU under the Horizon 2020 programme. JUSTNORTH aims to change the future of Arctic economic development by bringing recognition and respect for different value systems to decision-making. In 17 case studies examining the historical and legal development of economic activities in the Arctic, the project team is learning the values of Arctic stakeholders and rightsholders to define the starting point for sustainability and analyses the justice implications for economic activities in the Arctic. These values and their indicators from the JUSTNORTH case studies will provide a cornerstone for determining the viability of economic activities in the Arctic, as well as clarify policy, legal, and regulatory pathways for implementing decision-making principles based on justice and ethics.
