Food Security in the Arctic: Some Lessons from Nunavut

Open seminar hosted by the Centre for Arctic Policy Studies at the University of Iceland Friday October 14 from 12:00 to 13:00 at Oddi 202
The matter of food security is of the utmost importance in the Arctic. Substantial socio-economic and other consequences of food insecurity point to existing inequalities in the region. By exploring food security in Canada’s Nunavut, which is populated by an Inuit majority, this talk shall investigate how questions of food security are affected by global and local pressures and linked to the rights discourse.

Natalia Loukacheva, Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Governance and Law, University of Northern British Columbia.

The seminar will be held in English and is open to all.
