Arctic Indigenous Economies Video Series, November 2016

November 28, 2016

This video series was part of a one-day workshop titled, Arctic Indigenous Economies in Canada held at the University of Washington on Thursday, 10 November 2016. At the workshop six presenters from across Arctic Canada provided insights into how Arctic Indigenous economies are shaping domestic and international relations. Presenters included Jean-François Arteau, Kesserwan Arteau; Charlie Watt and Christine Nakoolak, Avataa Exploration and Logistics, Kuujjuaq, Nunavik; Andy Moorhouse, Vice President, Economic Development, Makivik Corporation, Nunavik; Burton Ayles, Canada Member, Canada/Inuvialuit Fisheries Joint Management Committee; and, Minister Sean Lyall, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, Nunatsiavut.

The presenters at the workshop were interviewed by the International Policy Institute (IPI) Arctic Fellows. IPI Arctic Fellows are UW graduate students whose research interests include the Arctic. In Fall 2016 they represented the Jackson School, School of Law, School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, the College of Education, and the Museology program. The IPI is funded by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York aimed at improving the transfer of research and expertise between higher education and the policy world in the area of global affairs. One of the key pillars of IPI is to train students to engage more effectively with the international policy and decision-making community.

This video series was made possible thanks to an Agreement on Academic Cooperation between the Korea Maritime institute and the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies (Jackson School) at the University of Washington to build breadth of collaboration across Arctic related issues and provide both educational and research outcomes for all activities and cooperative ventures. The Canadian Studies Center serves as host for the Agreement. Support funding was also provided by the East Asia Center, the Center for Global Studies in the Jackson School, and the Global Business Center, Foster School of Business (from the Office of Postsecondary Education, International and Foreign Language Education Office, U.S. Department of Education); and the International Policy Institute in the Jackson School (supported by funding from Carnegie Corporation of New York).
