Commercial interests in exploration and extraction of natural resources in Arctic areas are on the rise, owing to climatic changes making access easier in some respects as well as technological advancements and local demand for industrial development. Focusing particularly on organizational processes and the knowledge needed to identify and manage human rights impacts, the course will address the topic from a global perspective and draw on lecturers, examples and cases from the Global South to the Arctic.

Course fee: DKK 6,500 (covers the course, coffee/tea, lunch and one dinner). Through a grant from UArctic in collaboration with the Danish government, some limited financial support for travel and accommodation is available for students.

The course is co-organised under a project of the UArctic Thematic Network on Arctic Sustainable Resources and Social Responsibility.
