ABSTRACT

Rethinking Governance in Time of Pandemics in the Arctic   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "The world is currently facing a common challenge. COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] has turned into a global health crisis which has been affecting almost every individual simultaneously. The level of cooperation and coordination between actors at local, national, and global levels has become highly crucial and the effectiveness of the response mainly depends on good governance. Meanwhile, the Arctic is even more vulnerable to the effects of the pandemic due to its insufficient public health infrastructure. The aim of this paper is to examine the suitable governance models for the Arctic communities in order to cope with crises. Since an efficient governance process pertaining to the Arctic, which includes full participation of all Arctic states as well as Indigenous communities, is essential to implement resilience strategies, scientific governance is suggested as the suitable governance model to cope with crises within the region."
