The HuSArctic project ended in December 2018, and the contents of the website will not recieve further updates.
However, until further notice the website will stay online, so the project’s activities and outcomes remain accessible.
Three HuSArctic researchers attended this year’s edition of the annual Calotte Academy last week, presenting their research in different locations along the route.
HuSArctic researcher Gerald Zojer gave a guest lecture during the International Summer School in Karelia at the Petrozavodsk State University. His lecture was titled: “Main discourses in Arctic governance: A comparative analysis of the Barents Euro-Arctic Council and the Arctic Council.”
In his latest article entitled: “Securitizing the Arctic indigenous peoples: A community security perspective with special reference to the Sámi of the European high north”, Dr. Kamrul Hossain has examined the securitizing move by the Arctic indigenous peoples, in particular the Sámi of the European high north, to embrace non-traditional aspects of security, such as human and societal security.
On Wedenesday, April 13th, HuSArctic organized a meeting with various stakeholders from the Lapland region. The aim of the meeting was to have an informal discussion on how current developments may influence individual or community well-being in the region. Participants were representing diverse groups such as the mining sector, Sámi people, reindeer herders, public administration, or tourism sector.
On Thursday, February 25th, the HuSArctic research team in cooperation with the Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law (Arctic Centre, University of Lapland) successfully held a seminar titled: “Towards Arctic Security: Northern Aspects of Human Security.”
