The Northern Review 39: Consultation and Resource Development in Northern Communities: Russia, Scandinavia & Canada
The Northern Review 39 presents a special collection of open access essays, guest edited by Greg Poelzer, focused on topics of consultation strategies and stakeholder participation within northern resource extraction and development.
In cases of resource extraction and development, demand for greater participation and input in the development process by those affected by the industry has been well documented within the literature.
In response, the papers in this special collection explore the intricate and dynamic formal and informal processes of stakeholder engagement, which often involves multi-directional interactions between the state, industry, universities, community organizations, Indigenous peoples, and/or the general public.
