The project aims at establishing a network of scholars and advanced-level under-graduate and postgraduate students interested in Arctic studies from multidisciplinary and multidimensional perspectives. In its endeavour, the project will undertake education and research on issues related to Arctic social sciences and law. Project members will meet several times both in Japan and in Finland during 2018–2019. The activities within the project include e.g. joint seminar in February 2019, summer school in August 2019 and guest lectures. Out of total budget of 65,000 euro, the Ministry of Education of Finland granted 50,000 euro for the successful implementation of the project.
Research Professor Kamrul Hossain, the lead of UArctic Thematic Network on Arctic Law from the Arctic Centre at the University of Lapland, leads the project. Other lead partners are Associate Professor Veli-Pekka Tynkkynen from the University of Helsinki, Docent Ritva Kylli from the University of Oulu and Professors Sei-Ichi Saitoh and Juha Saunavaara from the Hokkaido University.
