Through my studies at the Jackson school, I developed a passion for human rights advocacy and ethnography. In light of the climate crisis, human rights and climate change have become increasingly intertwined and although my knowledge is abundant in human rights issues in Central and Eastern Europe, my knowledge of my very own continent and of its indigenous peoples is limited. I hope that through this task force I will be able to widen my knowledge of indigenous rights across the Arctic and explore China’s increasing involvement in Arctic affairs.
