Database on Arctic Doctoral and Post-doctoral Projects on Law


Welcome to use the Database on Arctic Doctoral and Post-doctoral Projects on Law

The database will be an online source to list information on the current and past doctoral and post-doctoral projects, primarily on Arctic law, but also topics intersecting broadly in Arctic law, policy, and governance.

The purpose of the project includes identifying prominent and emerging young scholars in Arctic law and their research, disseminating information on ongoing and current academic research in Arctic law, building a network of young scholars to interact and further collaborate in research fields/topics of common interest, and facilitating creating a framework of academic research in Arctic law and learning the gaps to address in future research (and also identifying overlaps in existing research).
