The Department of Environmental and Business Economics, University of Southern Denmark invites to a conference on "Arctic Marine Resource Governance" 14th-16th of October 2015 in Reykjavik, Iceland. The conference is part of the project: Marine Resource Governance in the Arctic, financially supported by Nordic Council of Ministers' Arctic Co-operation Programme, the Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Carlsberg Foundation.

Conference Themes: The ecosystem changes underway in the Arctic region are expected to have significant impacts on living resources in both the short and long run, and current actions and policies adopted over such resource governance will have serious and ultimately irreversible consequences in the near and long terms. The themes of the conference will be:

  • Global management and institutions for Arctic marine resources
  • Resource stewards and users: local and indigenous co-management
  • Governance gaps in Arctic marine resource management
  • Multi-scale, ecosystem-based, Arctic marine resource management

For consideration as a presenter, please submit a short abstract and title pertinent to the theme. For consideration as an attendee, please send a short note identifying your experience and interest in the topic. Presenters and attendees should expect to contribute to conference outputs, some of which may include publications and receive stipends (details to follow). Deadline for enrollment is September 15, 2015.
