Headshot of Evelyn Merino.


My name is Evelyn Merino and I’m currently a senior majoring in Global and Regional Studies and French with a minor in Law, Societies and Justice. I’m currently enrolled in the Ottawa task force as I was intrigued by the socio-politics of the Arctic Circle and how new nation-state observer members are working with indigenous communities. My interest through this task force is to be looking into perhaps how socio -politics relates with resource extraction in the arctic. I’m excited for this hands-on learning experience and working closely with communities that are first-hand seeing the changes.
