Theme Five: Relationship of Living Conditions
and Policies

Abstract: Governments have had a huge presence in the Arctic. They have enacted and implemented policies intended to improve housing, health, education, employment, local uses of resources, and to protect wildlife resources and the environment. Native organizations are increasingly assuming the role of outside government in developing and implementing policy. Have these policies been effective? Have there been unintended consequences? As a first step toward answering these questions, we can assess the variability of living conditions among the major policy jurisdictions of the Arctic: nations, regions and communities. Observed differences will invite comparative histories of policies in the context of geographic differences in economic resources.
