Oil Production Networks in the Russian Arctic (OPRA) Academy of Finland, ARKTIKO programme 1.1.2015-31.12.2018
The project focuses on the global production networks (GPNs) that shape the interaction among indigenous peoples, oil companies, and other actors in the Russian Arctic. In the absence of effective national regulation, global governance networks can assist in protecting the rights of local inhabitants and developing democratic decision-making in natural resources management. The project investigates the potentially transformative character of GPNs and demonstrates their impact on local communities and indigenous people. The aim of the project is to determine how these networks could be constructed to ensure the coexistence of profitable industries and sustainable indigenous communities. The right of indigenous peoples to social, cultural and economic sustainability is the starting point of the research, as we examine how actors with different interests interact within the network.
