Climate Arctic Governance (CArGo)

The purpose of the Interdisciplinary Research Network on Climate Arctic Governance (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.

CArGo draws together researchers from different disciplines working on Arctic climate governance with the aim to explore research synergies in this area.

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.
