- ARCTIC 400: Integrated Science and Policy in the Arctic
The Arctic Ocean is examined as a geographic region containing indigenous populations' regions, as well the EEZs of the five nation states, all of whom participate in the Arctic Council, with a large open access region in the center, belonging to no nation. A complex web of interactions and jurisdictions affect exploitation for non-renewable resources, the harvest and conservation of renewable resources, the potential for shipping between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the emerging status of the indigenous groups' rights to self-determination, and the recent admittance of the non-Arctic, Asian countries to the Arctic Council. NE Asia (containing the Russian Far East) as a future principle access or pathway to the Arctic Ocean, and thus Europe, is explored
- JSIS 495G: 2013 Task Force on Arctic Policy
The 2013 Task Force on Arctic Policy is a joint program between the Canadian Studies and International Studies centers in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington (UW). This year's Task Force on the Arctic has received support from the Government of Québec and will focus on the northern policies of the Government of Québec and Inuit of Nunavik in northern Québec. The vision of the program is to bring UW students together with their Inuit colleagues in Canada to address effective ways to govern the international Arctic region.
- FISH 600/SIS 495C: 2011 Task Force on Arctic Sovereignty
The 2011 Task Force on Arctic Governance is a joint program between the Canadian and Global Studies Centers in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington (UW) and the Makivik Corporation, Nunavik, Province of Québec, Canada as part of the UW and Makivik Corporation Educational Agreement Initiative. The vision of the program is to bring UW students together with their Inuit colleagues in Canada to address effective ways to govern the international Arctic region.
