Human rights and the Arctic

The rights of the indigenous peoples, preconditions of scientific research in the Arctic, and the human rights perspectives in research and utilization of natural resources – these are the topics of the symposium “Human Rights and the Arctic” which deals with the human rights dimension in the Arctic studies. The symposium is held on September 29 in Helsinki, Finland.

The theme “Arctic” is especially topical in Finland, as Finland currently holds the two-year rotating chairmanship position of the Arctic Council, an intergovernmental forum addressing sustainable development and environmental protection in the Arctic. The 7th Human Rights and Science Symposium is hosted by the Council of Finnish Academies. It belongs to a symposium series managed by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and is organised in collaboration with the Council of Finnish Academies.
