In recent years, an increasing emphasis has been placed on the concept of governance in Arctic social science, as well as in international research projects on the Arctic region. This seminar will present a critical analysis of the various uses of the concept of governance in Arctic social science, and explain how political science and law, in particular in the Greenlandic context, can fruitfully cooperate to analyse issues at stake in the development of natural resources (private and public actors, processes, institutions, fragmentation of law…). Finally, the presentation will propose a framework to associate other sciences like anthropology or biology in an interdisciplinary project focusing on off-shore resource activities and sustainability.

The Arctic Seminars is a forum for interdisciplinary discussions on research perspectives in the Arctic region. The presenters in the Seminar series come from a variety of disciplines across the four faculties involved in ARC.  

All interested are welcome to participate. There will be coffee and tea during the seminar.
