About Kathrine Ivsett Johnsen
Kathrine Ivsett Johnsen
Senior Expert Indigenous and Community Issues
Phone: +47 412 34 581

I am a Norwegian from Oslo and have been interested in human rights and environmental issues since my early youth. My engagement with GRID-Arendal started in 2001. Since then, I have been working on projects related to ecological management and Indigenous Peoples' livelihoods. In recent years, my work has concentrated on environmental change and its impact on reindeer husbandry in the Arctic and sub-Arctic.


My academic background includes a Bachelor in Environmental Health from the University of Western Sydney, Australia, and a Masters in Natural Resource Management from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU).


While working for GRID-Arendal, I am also a PhD research fellow at the Department of International Environment and Development Studies (Noragric) at NMBU, where I study the governance of Sámi reindeer husbandry. My particular interest is the power relations in the formation and implementation of policies and regulations, and knowledge- and value-conflicts between the herders and the "society at large".
