Seminar: Public Participation in Arctic Extractive Industries

On Tuesday 17th October 2017, the Arctic Oil & Gas Research Centre organised a one-day intensive seminar that explored the status of public participation in extractive industry decision-making in the Arctic, and looked for ways to improve the quality of the experience and the results for all stakeholders.

Three panels of experts examined in turn: resource development in Greenland; the international law regarding participation; and participation in practice.

The seminar brought together experts from Greenland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Scotland, England and Brazil.
