Case studies on demographic change and migration in the Arctic

Objective

This project aims to provide both data and recent trends on demography situation in the Arctic by developing an Arctic Demography Index that integrates natural (natural increase and decrease) and mechanical (education, labour, snowbird and sunshine) demography parameters in five Arctic States (Russian Federation, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Canada). This project will also conduct case studies in these countries of tensions between Indigenous Peoples and business, and how these tensions are managed.

Activities

  1. Evaluation and assessment of best practices in the sphere of two natural and mechanical demography parameters (natural decrease, natural increase, migration flows of four types in five Arctic Council States (Russian Federation, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Canada)
  2. Evaluation and assessment of best practices in the sphere of Arctic migration collecting statistical data in terms of four types of migration (educational, labour (circular+initial), snowbird and sunshine migration) and its visualization in infographics
  3. Information exchange arranging with the stakeholders on a regular basis aimed on sharing the best practices in the sphere of demography within Arctic States
  4. Calculating Arctic Demography Index for 19 Arctic territories of five Arctic Council States in terms of natural and mechanical demography parameters
  5. Collecting of cases from five Arctic Council States to develop knowledge to understand better conflicts of interests between Indigenous Peoples and business, and how such conflicts are handled
  6. Creation of the official portal dedicated to the Project and its implementation outcomes
