International Summer School 2020 – Global Arctic

When: 20 June 2020 - 28 June 2020

Where: University centre in Svalbard, Longyearbyen

An interdisciplinary programme for PhD students and post-docs.

Modern phenomena such as globalization, climate change and transboundary pollution have brought the Arctic into global webs of science, commerce, security and geopolitics. To identify and discuss the points of connections within and across the natural-, social- and humanistic sciences is the intrinsic core of the term Global Arctic and also the working mode of the Summer school.

The NVP’s 2020 Summer school aims to produce a better understanding of the significance of “Global Arctic” as a tool of integrative analysis and political management, as well as inviting novel ideas for research and learning coming from students taking part from inside and outside of the Arctic. The students of different disciplinary backgrounds will publish the results of their work at the Summer school in a joint peer-reviewed article published in an international journal of high academic standard.
