Panel description

Outline of Hour: We are proposing to have five individuals on the panel. One will be the moderator and will introduce the topic and the panel. The other four will address the two questions being proposed. Each will have 10 minutes to speak. The final 15 minutes will be reserved for comments from the audience. Not all of four speakers have yet been confirmed, but each will be from a different region of the Arctic and will represent a different academic discipline. At least one panelist will be a non-academic community representative.
Panel Members: Lee Huskey (University of Alaska, Anchorage, USA), Ken Coates (University of Saskatchewan, Canada), Pavel Sulyandziga (Center for Indigenous Peoples, Russia), Alona Yefimenko (Indigenous Peoples Secretariat, Denmark)
