SECURITY in the ARCTIC
16 – 20 Apr 2018, UiT, Kirkenes Campus, Norway
This PhD course will address the historic and current relationships between Norway and Russia – and other relevant international actors operating in the region – and how these affect human/security in the Arctic. This course will probably include a fieldtrip to nearby Russia, specifically the extractive industry town of Nickel’. Participants should be aware that they need a visa for this, which takes some time to apply for depending where you live. More information on registration etc here
