Title (Name of event - max 250 characters)Arctic Peoples and Security Conference
Start dateTuesday 29 Jan 2013
End dateWednesday 30 Jan 2013
Location - (max 50 characters)Toronto, Canada

The goal of this conference is to explore different ways of conceptualizing and understanding security in the Arctic in order to develop and implement sounder, more productive, and more inclusive public policies in the North.

The traditional view of Arctic security is focused primarily on military defence, and is habitually seen as distinct from local, northern understandings of security that are often inclusive of economic and social concerns.

This conference is designed to engage decision-makers and the academic community in a conversation about how to better integrate the needs and wants of northern residents into the broader Arctic security debate.
