What are the governance challenges facing Canada’s northern and Arctic natural resource systems? How might more collaborative and networked governance of these transboundary systems enhance public policy, science and community outcomes? Which factors are likely to affect learning and collaboration across organizational and jurisdictional boundaries? Focusing on these questions, and drawing on recent and current research, this seminar will reflect on the management opportunities and challenges posed by collaborative governance in northern and Arctic environments. Interactive discussion will be encouraged.

Gordon Hickey is an Associate Professor and William Dawson Scholar in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at McGill University specializing in sustainable natural resource management, policy and governance. Prior to joining McGill, he worked in senior policy and management roles in government leading specialist teams to deliver a range of resource sustainability initiatives.
