New Research Network on Climate Arctic Governance (CArGo)

Beatriz Martinez Romera (Centre for International Law and Governance) has received a two-year grant (398.496 kr) from the University of Copenhagen for the interdisciplinary research network on Climate Arctic Governance (CArGo) in collaboration with Frank Sejersen (Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies), Ylva Sjöberg (Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management) and Kristian Søby Kristensen (Centre for Military Studies).

The purpose of CArGo is to advance research in Arctic governance to meet the climate and sustainability challenges the world is facing. CArGo’s subject areas and activities will focus on Arctic socio-economic systems and the different legal, political, geographical and cultural regimes at play.

The network incorporates scholars from law, political science, geoscience and humanities to explore research synergies on this topic. While CArGo’s founding partners represent law, political science, humanities and science, the network is open to all disciplines and researchers, and it is the goal of CArGo to incorporate more scholars over time to broaden views, approaches and funding opportunities.

Please get in touch with Beatriz (beatriz.martinez.romera@jur.ku.dk) if you wish you partake or know more.

The project will run from September 2021 – September 2023.
