Researcher of Arctic and northern change
At the heart of our university’s research profile lies Arctic and northern change. The effects of the global economic and political changes and global warming are particularly severe in the Arctic region. We produce scientific knowledge on northern societies and environment and their interaction with each other to ensure that life in the Arctic and northern regions will flourish also in the future.
Our profile is based on our university’s strategy.
As part of our Arctic and northern expertise, we have the responsibility in the Finnish university establishment to conduct research on Sámi rights and law and Sámi-related issues in society.
