The Survey of Living Conditions in the Arctic (SLICA) is a joint
international project that conducts a comparative study of living conditions
among the Inuit and Saami peoples of the United States, Canada, Greenland,
Norway, Sweden, Finland and the indigenous peoples of the Kola Peninsula and
Chukotka in Russia.
The major objectives of the SLICA are:
|To achieve a collaboration of researchers and Arctic Native peoples
interested in living conditions in the Arctic.|
|To extend the field of living conditions research to include dimensions
most relevant to Arctic peoples.|
|To compare living conditions in different regions of the Arctic|
|To advance our understanding of the relationships between policies,
individual resources, and living conditions.|
|To provide local, regional, national, and international organizations an
improved basis for decision-making.|
