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.
