University of Washington

Arctic & International Relations is a Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies (JSIS)-wide initiative, led by the Canadian Studies Center to address the Arctic as an emerging global region and actor on the world stage. JSIS and the Center are working in partnership with a parallel initiative, Future of Ice (http://ice.washington.edu/) – a College of the Environment, College of Arts and Sciences, and Applied Physics Laboratory initiative – to enhance the University of Washington’s (UW) profile in research, education and public engagement about the polar regions. As part of Future of Ice, JSIS and School of Oceanography now offer a minor in Arctic Studies. The Canada Fulbright Visiting Chair in Arctic Studies is supported by the UW Office of Global Affairs, the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, Social Sciences Division, College of Arts and Sciences, College of the Environment, and the Foundation for Educational Exchange Between Canada and the United States of America, Ottawa. The Canadian Studies Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, serves as the hosting unit for the Canada Fulbright Chair in Arctic Studies.

OPEN NOW - Register for ARCTIC 200: Indigenous Diplomacies & International Relations in the Arctic
3 credits | I&S Credit | T 3:30-5:20pm | THO 135 | SNL: 10422
The Arctic – home to 400,000 indigenous people – is emerging as one of the most dynamic regions in global geopolitics in no small part because of the role of Arctic indigenous peoples in international relations and sovereignty efforts. This course will examine the characteristics of the Arctic as an emerging region in the world including the Arctic Council, the international and national Inuit associations, Arctic foreign policy, climate change, and issues of sovereignty and security from both nation‐state and indigenous perspectives. The course will draw in policy studies, spatial analysis and customary international law to understand how Arctic indigenous peoples are furthering their voice and interests in the Arctic.
