We are pleased to announce a call for abstracts for the upcoming workshop “Sustainability and the Arctic” – an interdisciplinary workshop for Early-Career Researchers, organised in Tampere, Finland on November 16.-17.2023. The workshop is a two-day event happening on-site at the City Centre Campus of Tampere University, in collaboration with the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge and the Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law (NIEM) at the Arctic Centre, University of Lapland. The idea is to bring ECRs and senior scholars together for an intensive workshop where an active, encouraging and constructive atmosphere is created in cooperation with the participants, keynote speakers and the organisers. The keynote speakers are Dr. Sanna Kopra (Senior Researcher at Arctic Centre, University of Lapland & Senior Fellow at The Arctic Institute) and Prof. Richard Powell (Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge University).

The theme of the workshop, “Sustainability and the Arctic”, is purposely broad. With the theme we encourage papers in-progress where thinking goes beyond mere sustainable development and may challenge, question, criticise and further develop what ‘sustainability’ in contemporary terms means for the Arctic. While the primary focus is on social sciences and humanities, interdisciplinary perspectives aligned with the theme are welcomed.
