Humanizing Security in the Arctic


Changing climatic conditions, economic development strategies, health and education concerns, social relationships, and shifting political agendas all contribute to on-going change in Arctic societies. Under such circumstances, how can its residents build a sense of security? How do they achieve a balance between innovation and respect for time-honored values? Participants in the Sixth IPSSAS Seminar sought to understand these issues. As a diverse group of people from various countries, presentations covered a wide range of topics: institutional security, identity and culture, law and governance, health and education, resources and economy, language and lifestyle, food security, and sovereignty. This volume features twenty-two chapters addressing various forms of (in) security in the Arctic. Studies demonstrate that resource scarcity is just as important as resource abundance, that disparities in income are counterbalanced by opportunities, and that the movement of populations to and from the Arctic is meaningful for those who leave as well as for those who stay.
