Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0886452058, Paperback)The North is an increasingly important focal point of public policy. The impact of climate change on the environment and community life underlines the urgent need for measures to slow this trend and facilitate adaptation to uncertain conditions. International events have underlined the importance of safeguarding Canada's sovereignty in its Arctic regions, and the federal government has announced a series of measures to further this objective. The result of a wide-ranging IRPP research program, this multidisciplinary volume explores the following themes: Canada in the circumpolar world - environmental, scientific and foreign-policy dimensions; First Nations, Inuit and public governance; economic development - enterprise, sustainable development and communities; sustaining people - education and human capital; and developing a northern policy for the future. Public policy specialists review the implications of the unprecedented changes in governance that have taken place in the three territories and in Aboriginal communities in northern Quebec and Labrador over the past three decades and analyze challenges that must be faced in order to strengthen economic development and quality of life for northern residents. Contributions from Inuit and First Nations leaders, former territorial premiers, and Aboriginal youth activists add further depth and perspective.
