Course description

The overall aim of the course is to learn and reflect upon multidisciplinary and multi-theoretical research approaches to governance in the context of the High North: what are implications for Arctic private and public sector. This course will focus on the particular 'level' of governance associated with a type of organization (including, e.g. public governance, global governance, and corporate governance). Firstly, we identify the nature of the concept itself. Secondly, we consider it in the framework of the relevant theories, and then the different examples of implications of the governance is discussed. Participation at the conference “High North Dialogue Conference” will give an exemplification of the governance issues in the context of the High North. At the scenario workshop, students will learn about different methodologies for scenario building and will be working in multidisciplinary groups on scenario topic relevant for the High North Dialogue conference.
