Social Justice in the Canadian Arctic

Saturday, 21 July 2018: 10:30-12:20
TG03 Human Rights and Global Justice (host committee)

Language: English

This panel serves to carve out a space for sociological perspectives on questions of power and justice as it relates to Indigenous Peoples living in the Arctic. With climate change causing increased geopolitical and economic interest in the Arctic region, questions concerning how this increased interest is impacting those living in the Arctic have come to the forefront. Some of the issues that this panel seeks to grapple with include examining the kinds of impacts that are taking place, analyzing how these impacts are being negotiated, and assessing what historical patterns may be re-emerging. Papers are welcome from a diverse set of themes including, but not limited to, sovereignty, governance, education, housing, resource development, cooperatives, and food security.
