8-12 June, 2017: ICE LAW Project Sessions at the International Congress of Arctic Social Science (Umeå)

The ICE LAW Project will be hosting a pair of sessions at the International Congress of Arctic Social Science, in Umeå, Sweden, both on Thursday 8 June (the first day of the meeting).

First, at 1130, there will be a paper session with the following programme:

  1. Gavin Bridge – Economising Arctic Natures
  2. Kristen L. Shake – (Un)frozen Boundaries: Examining the Role of Sea Ice in the Socio-Legal Dynamics of the Bering and Beaufort Seas
  3. Aldo Chircop – Ship Reporting and Routeing in Arctic Waters: Practices, Trends and Lessons
  4. Claudio Aporta, Aldo Chircop, Kate Coddington, Stephanie C. Kane and Leah Beveridge,  – Mobilities and Migrations in Northern Chokepoints: Navigating Risks and Setting Priorities in Geographically Conflicted Areas
  5. Anna Stammler-Gossmann – Arctic Fisheries: Puzzle of Sustainability in a Shifting Environment

Secondly, after lunch, the ICE LAW gathering will resume at 1430 with a panel discussion to discuss lessons learned from the project to date and, more generally, the challenges and opportunities that emerge when southern institutional, legal, and social norms are extended to the world’s frozen regions. Panelists will include participants from the first session as well as other ICASS attendees who are — or wish to become — active in the project.

Both sessions will meet in Session Room 8.
