  • Face of the Month: Research in Arctic governance in an atmosphere of trust

    30 September 2018

    Arktikum is an international, interdisciplinary, multi-dimensional science center and museum based in Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland. It serves but as a museum for visitors to explore the Arctic areas and learn more about what it has been and what it is like to live far North, also as a "hub" for a big group of Finnish and foreign Arctic-enthusiast researches whose main focus and interest is the Arctic. These researches themselves, however seldom come from the North, but instead most of them are originally from elsewhere - some from as far as Sicily, UK, US, Australia and so forth. 

    Maria Paldanius had a beautiful opportunity to "do research on the Arctic researches" this year. She has completed a series of interviews with an aim to clarify the actual daily life, work, challenges and opportunities of the Arctic researches working here in the North. From the very beginning the audience has greatly appreciated "clear writing and the grassroots' level - explanations, which have helped people understand what these researches actually do and why it is important (to us all).

    The journalist presents the series of interviews.
