This dissertation argues that the trend of global immigration has an impact on regional governance. There are important gaps that remain in global governance, e.g. obstacles to an assessment of the economic, socio-cultural and security-related consequences, no binding forces for the preparation of development strategies, etc. These gaps hamper immigration management on the regional level. Whether or not, it is necessary to establish binding and worldwide standards policies under international law. Therefore, this dissertation highlights regional discourses to identify the effects that include a number of substantial regional problems in order to integrate immigrants into the Arctic. Some issues of governance regarding competitive economy and socioculture ecology are raised, focusing on state norms and policies about social sectors and actors through the case study articles.
A viable economic condition and subjective well-being are needed for an active lifestyle, and good territorial planning may encourage or discourage the physical participation of immigrants. Territorial planning factor very much depends on the authoritative decision of regional and national governments, their policies and institutional norms. Building an equitable and sustainable ecosystem includes restructuring rules and values depending on the situation. The acculturation of immigrants into a host territory is related to subjective well-being, psychological growth, and sustainable behaviour within a territory or neighbourhood. A positive environment is an unbound source of resources fulfilling human needs, the emergence of selfefficacy and supports the integration of immigrants.
