Speaker information

Dr Petra Dolata, Lecturer in International Politics, King's College London

Arctic policy has emerged as an important issue area in Canadian politics. While it has evolved since the early 2000s to include many aspects and refers to various levels of governance (local, regional, national, circumpolar and international) the narrative of sovereignty seems to override all these.

This presentation will suggest that the best way to understand Canadian arctic policy is by focusing on historical narratives and identity constructions.
