JUSTNORTH is an EU-funded climate action project exploring the perspectives and values that stakeholders can bring to Arctic economic decision-making. It aims to change the future of Arctic economic development by bringing recognition and respect for different value systems to decision-making.
In 17 case studies examining the historical and legal development of economic activities in the Arctic, the project team is learning the values of Arctic stakeholders and rightsholders to define the starting point for sustainability and analyses the justice implications for economic activities in the Arctic.
