Editor, Arctic Security Working Papers series, Munk-Gordon and ArcticNet Arctic Security Projects (2012-14)
The Working Papers on Arctic Security series was a joint project between the Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program and the ArcticNet project on The Emerging Arctic Security Environment.
The papers fall into three categories. The first includes theoretically–and empirically–driven academic papers on subjects related to Arctic security broadly conceptualized. The second focuses on the impacts of defence and security practices on Arctic peoples, with a particular emphasis on the Canadian North during and after the Cold War. The third category of papers summarizes key Canadian and international policy documents related to Arctic security and sovereignty issues.
I edited the series as co-chair of the Arctic Peoples and Security pillar of the Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program and co-lead for the ArcticNet project on The Emerging Arctic Security Environment.
The views presented in the Working Papers on Arctic Security series are the authors’ own and do not reflect the opinions of the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation, the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs, or the ArcticNet project on The Emerging Arctic Security Environment.
