The Nordland Research Institute invites workshop registration for the Indigenous People with Disabilities in the Arctic: Workshop for Initiating Research Collaboration. This one-day, hybrid workshop will take place 31 May 2024 in Valnesfjord, Norway and online.

The workshop will bring together an international, interdisciplinary group of researchers and stakeholders interested in the lived experiences and inclusion of Indigenous people with disabilities in the Arctic regions of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Sápmi. The aim is to map existing knowledge and identify knowledge gaps and develop a shared research agenda, as a basis for a research proposal. Virtual participation is possible.

The workshop is organized by the Nordland Research Institute in collaboration with the Centre for Saami and Indigenous Studies at Nord University and hosted by the Valnesfjord Health Sports Centre. The workshop is supported by the Research Council of Norway (grant no. 352065).

Registration deadline: 15 May 2024
