MetadataShow full item record
Worldwide interest in the Arctic is growing. Changing ice conditions, an increase in regional development, and international geopolitics have placed the High North at the center of attention. Since 2007, the High North Dialogue Conference series has brought together major interested parties – present and future – concerned with Arctic development, including politicians and heads of administration from central governments in all Arctic States, major extractive industry leaders, and representatives from fishing communities, academia, local communities, indigenous people, local politicians, other important stakeholders and master and Ph.D. students. As suggested by its name, the focus of the High North Dialogue is on the aspect of dialogue. This dialogue takes place between young people, future leaders, and representatives from the Arctic region’s industry—ranging from maritime to land-based industry—authorities, and academics, in order to share information and discuss the best practices, with the aim of tackling challenges in the region.
