Arctic Human Development Report

Regional Processes and Global Linkages

The goals of the second volume of the AHDR – Arctic Human Development Report: Regional Processes and Global Linkages – are to provide an update to the first AHDR (2004) in terms of an assessment of the state of Arctic human development; to highlight the major trends and changes unfolding related to the various issues and thematic areas of human development in the Arctic over the past decade; and, based on this assessment, to identify policy relevant conclusions and key gaps in knowledge, new and emerging Arctic success stories.

Hide / Show Abstract

Arctic or far-northern areas are increasingly connected into a globalizing international system (Aarsæther and Bærenholdt, 2001; Keskitalo, 2008; Keskitalo, 2004; and Heininen and Southcott, 2010; Southcott, 2005). Impacts of globalization vary across a range of factors: in some cases globalization represents an intensification of processes with which Arctic communities have a long history of involvement, while in others, globalization brings new benefits and new challenges (Vaughan, 2007; and McGhee, 2004).
