Arctic Social Systems

Some ISER studies, usually done with national or international parties, look at public policy issues across the Arctic—issues that affect not only Alaska but are common across the region. That work includes compiling data on changing social and economic conditions around the Arctic and analyzing the resilience of communities in the face of change.
