The overview is based on a study 'Arctic Strategies & Policies: Inventory & Comparative Study' done by Heininen and published by the NRF and University of Lapland.
"Though the study is ready and just published, it is a draft until
Sweden will approve and launch its arctic strategy or policy. The
Swedish government intends to do so in the spring of 2011." Says Dr.
The Northern Research Forum and the University of the Arctic put
forth the proposal to initiate a project concerning an “Inventory and
Assessment on Arctic and Northern policies, and the Interplay between
Science and Politics in Northern Issues”.
