Joël and I wish to make the Arctic/North section one of the most dynamic at the conference and include issues of sovereignty for Arctic peoples and nations; education in the Arctic including University of the Arctic; governance including the Arctic Council; the role of Permanent Participants on the Arctic Council; Canada's role in the Arctic Council; defense and security; the A5-A8 debate and its significance for Canada; Canada's relations with Nordic states and Russia; Arctic domestic and foreign policies; and other emerging issues and developments. All proposals should have a distinctive Canadian focus, but we also encourage submissions that consider Canada in a comparative context.   Please follow the instructions for submissions below.
