A talk given by Dr. Kamrul Hossain at the Arctic Science Summit Week 2015, 27-30 April, Toyama, Japan.
Arctic Science Summit Week is an annual event that brings together scholars from all across the world who are involved in Arctic studies both from natural science and social science disciplines. In the year 2015 the event has been organized in Toyama, an amazingly beautiful city, located in the central east coast of Japan by the Sea of Japan in its main island. With approximately 800 participants, the event has seen a great success both in sharing knowledge on Arctic studies from multi-disciplinary angles as well as in facilitating building of strong networks amongst scholars themselves as well as scholars and stakeholders. As part of the HuSArctic project, Dr. Kamrul Hossain has presented a paper arguing for states’ assertive actions for the promotion of the governance of human security to the extent the concept is applicable to the indigenous peoples of the Arctic.
