Over the past thirty years we have witnessed a demand for resources such as minerals, oil and gas which is only set to increase. This book examines the relationship between Arctic communities and extractive resource development. With insights from leading thinkers in the field, the book examines this relationship to better understand what, if anything, can be done in order for the development of non-renewable resources to be of benefit to the long-term sustainability of these communities. The contributions synthesize circumpolar research on the topic of resource extraction in the Arctic, and highlights areas that need further investigation such as the ability of northern communities to properly use currently regulatory process, fiscal arrangements, and benefit agreements to ensure the long-term sustainability of their culture communities and to avoid a new path dependency This book provides an insightful summary of issues surrounding resource extraction in the Arctic, and will be an essential reading for anyone interested in environmental impact assessments, globalization and Indigenous communities, and the future of the Arctic region.
