This chapter explores the nexus between human security of the people residing in the Russian North, and the development of extractive industries. Four different categories of threats to the human security of local communities are identified and then, with the help of case studies from the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, examples of three types of responses to those threats are explored. Fieldwork from Siberia demonstrates how industry increases the economic security of regional workers but can continue to endanger traditional livelihoods despite state and company efforts to mitigate the impacts.
