Migration in the Circumpolar North

Issues and Contexts

This book provides an introduction to the study of migration in the circumpolar north, a region that includes the northern parts of eight Arctic nations (Canada, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and the US). The Norths in each of these eight countries share certain demographic and environmental characteristics as well as an economic base dependent on natural resource production. In much of the north, indigenous populations continue to practice place-specific traditional economic activities. This volume provides an overview of the causes and consequences of migration behavior in the northern regions of most Arctic countries and discusses policy issues that arise from the recent northern migration experience. The divergent institutional, economic, and policy histories in similar environmental circumstances suggest that much can be learned by comparing and contrasting the migration experience around the circumpolar north.
