Introduction: challenges and opportunities regarding migration in the North

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific


(Im)migration in the north is not a new phenomenon but indeed an unexplored area of research and development. The Arctic region is facing new problems and challenges alongside the already existing ones of Arctic migration. For example, refugees are a growing group of inhabitants in the Arctic. Cultural differences, the acceptance of foreign citizens in the local communities, integration into local communities and labour markets are some of the issues that need cross-border cooperation to contribute to innovative solutions.
