Profile Information


Arctic societies: Past, present, future research programme aims to generate a holistic understanding of the societies of the circumpolar north in times of dramatic change. The research conducted in the programme consists primarily of the disciplines of anthropology, law, and governance complemented by fields such as geography and history.

We foster a holistic and solution-oriented understanding of Arctic communities and the challenges they are facing today, rooted in an understanding of their cultures and history, embedded in the wider context of human-nature interactions in the circumpolar Arctic and contextualized with current and emerging conditions of life in the Arctic, including natural, socio-cultural, and legal aspects.
