The focus of this thematic network is multilevel and comparative governance in the circumpolar north. The network will facilitate collaboration between researchers who study the institutional evolution of Arctic and northern governance from the local to global levels. It will also encourage the comparative examination of governance across different political jurisdictions. The network welcomes research collaboration between academics and stakeholders that responds to regional and local needs.
