Arctic Social Systems

A number of ISER studies 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
  • Analyzing migration as an adaptation to change in Arctic communities
  • Potential ways of strengthening institutions for Arctic governance
  • Resilience of human-rangifer systems to forces of change
