The aims of the project are to examine how large development projects like mining, production of electric power, and aquaculture challenge traditional resource use and management, and the types of governance arrangements established to regulate the relationship between traditional land use and large industrial development.

The project includes a comparative component assessing the countries in the circumpolar area – Canada, Finland, Norway, Russia, and Sweden

TriArc will examine to what extent decentralized governance contribute to more appropriate, effective and legitimate governance solutions promoting Indigenous engagement in resource governance systems.

TriARC is lead by UiT – The Arctic University of Tromsø, with participation from NIKU.
