Arctic Horizons

Arctic Horizons brings together members of the Arctic social science and indigenous communities to reassess the goals, potentials, and needs of these diverse communities and ASSP within the context of a rapidly changing circumpolar North. 

A series of five topical and regional workshops held across the country bring together approximately 150 western and indigenous scholars to discuss the future of Arctic social science research. An interactive web platform  intergrates additional participation by the broader Arctic social sciences, indigenous science, and stakeholder communities, that will also share workshop and project outcomes, supported by special sessions at national and regional conferences. The results of the workshops and on-line input will be compiled at a final synthesis workshop with a report produced to describes the community's vision for the future of Arctic social science research. This re-envisioning process goes towards shaping future Arctic social science research and inform Arctic economic, environmental, and political policy development.
