Enablement besides Constraints: Addressing a Cyber Multidisciplinary Framework for the Promotion of Human Security in the European High North (ECoHuCy) project partners met up on September 18th 2017 at the British Academy in London. This was the second project meeting in which partners presented the current state of their research efforts and discussed the project’s future trajectories. The meeting was organised by Swansea University.

The day began with a welcome by Prof. Michael Sheehan (Swansea University) and a brief update on the project’s overall development by Associate Prof. Kamrul Hossain (Arctic Centre). The morning session consisted of researchers’ presentations on the research articles they are currently working on, eight presentations altogether. The afternoon session was a workshop run by Swansea University based on the presentations so that all papers were discussed in further detail. The workshop was followed by a steering committee meeting for deciding upon the near future activities.

All partnering institutions – Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland, UiT – The Arctic University of Tromso and Institute for Security and Development Policy – attended the meeting, alongside some external contributors. Programme and minutes of the meeting can be found under “meeting materias”.
