The world has long approached the Arctic as a resource to benefit domestic and global economies. However, those who call the region home are increasingly defining a distinct
economic model. International studies has only begun to integrate the voices of non-nation-state actors in considering global decision-making. How Arctic Indigenous people
organize economically is a new frontier in international relations. In a post-land claims environment, traditional livelihoods are integrated with Arctic Indigenous owned
businesses to create what one might call a uniquely Arctic economic model. This workshop will explore Arctic Indigenous economies and both their local and international roles.

Participants include:

  • Jean-François Arteau, Kesserwan Arteau, Québec City
  • Charlie Watt, President and Christine Nakoolak, Avataa Exploration and Logistics, Nunavik, Canada
  • Andy Moorhouse, Vice President, Economic Development, Makivik Corporation, Inukjuak, Nunavik, Canada
  • Burton Ayles, Canada Member, Canada/Inuvialuit Fisheries Joint Management Committee, Inuvialuit, Canada
  • Sean Lyall, Minister, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, Nunatsiavut, Canada
  • Dr. Young-kil Park, Director, Polar Policy Research Center, Industry Intelligence and Strategy Research Division, Korea Maritime Institute
  • Jeehye Kim, Researcher, Polar Policy Research Center, Industry Intelligence and Strategy Research Division, Korea Maritime Institute

This meeting is 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. 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).
