Subject: Media Alert - Arctic Peoples and Security Conference
Arctic security conference gives a voice to Inuit looking for
people-focused policies in Canada's North
The Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program is hosting its third annual conference, "Arctic Peoples and Security." Taking place in Toronto over two days, the conference will create an opportunity for dialogue between Arctic residents, experts and decision-makers who will work together towards improving Canada's Arctic security public policy. It will also give a voice to emerging leaders who will add a fresh perspective to these important debates.
Now in its third year, the annual Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program conference has become one of the premiere venues for the discussion of circumpolar issues, covering topics such as the Arctic Council, public opinion in and about the North, and emergency management.
"Arctic Peoples and Security" is hosted by the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation and the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, in partnership with Inuit Qaujisarvingat: Inuit Knowledge Centre at Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami; St. Jerome's University; and the Centre for Contemporary International History.
