CAPS is supporting research on the subject of Arctic security across multiple scales and contexts.
"Security" can mean many things to many different people and organizations. For example, security can mean individual and household well-being, sustainable access to food sources, adaptability in the face of environmental and climate change, economic diversification in the face of fluctuating market forces, military capacity in a context of shifting global geopolitics, and much more.
In concert with various experts, Drs. Brandon Boylan and Jeremy Speight are working on this topic for CAPS, the results of which will be shared here in late 2020/early 2021. Both faculty are Associate Professors of Political Science and affiliated with Arctic and Northern Studies at UAF; Dr. Boylan is the program's Director.
