CIRCLA - Centre for Innovation and Research in Culture and Living in the Arctic
Welcome to the CIRCLA homepage!
CIRCLA's geographical area of interest is the Circumpolar North (including Greenland, Nordic Region/Countries; Canada, Alaska and Russia, the North Atlantic and the Polar Sea). The field of interest is broadly defined as Arctic Studies, but particular attention is given to research in the human sciences within the areas of social, cultural and political analysis, discourse, communication, post-colonial governance, culture-driven innovation, and sustainable development (including tourism and management of natural and cultural heritage). Additionally, we prioritize research with a focus on the Arctic and its relationship with other parts of the world – e.g. EU, Asia, Russia, and the United States.
CIRCLA contributes with new problem-based research that discusses the real-life problems which Arctic communities are facing today. Thus, understanding and studying Arctic developments in dialogue, collaboration and exchange with local communities is of the essence.
