The CA 2016 will discuss on resilience and sustainability in the context of the globalized Arctic theoretically and holistically from many angles and disciplinary approaches from the perspectives of past(s), present(s) and future(s); and in global, international, and pan-Arctic context, as well as in sub-regional and local context in the Barents Sea area
Although the concept of “Sustainable development” is widely used and discussed, it has been politicized and has often been used in order to promote economic growth. “Resilience” is interpreted more flexibly and innovatively, and understood to indicate long-term capacity of a system to adapt and deal with changes. Due to the rapid changes in the Arctic, resilience is needed when trying to address current challenges and to develop the region’s sustainably.
We ask you to submit a title and a brief abstract (250-300 words) of your paper with your name, affiliation and e-mail address.
