Context of the Principles for the Conduct of Arctic Research:
The current Principles were prepared by the Social Science Task Force of the U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee, approved by the on June 28, 1990, and published by in volume 9, (Spring, 1995, pp.56-57) of the journal “Arctic Research of the United States” (https://www.arctic.gov/publications/related/arotus.html).
Since 1990, community engagement and Arctic research have advanced both in theory and in practice, necessitating a review and update of the current Principles. The Principles Revision Working Group of is seeking input from all stakeholders to revise and update the Principles. The update will focus on communicating clearly the Principles for community engagement by Arctic researchers and including language that describes partnerships and collaborations with Indigenous scholars, enhanced community-based observations, fostering community-based participatory research, and the integral contributions of Indigenous knowledge in the co-production and dissemination of knowledge. Input is also sought on enhancing the dissemination and implementation of the Principles.
Please come and share your views on how to revise the Principles with the Principles Revision Working Group co-chairs, Roberto Delgado of (email@example.com) and Renee Crain of (firstname.lastname@example.org) and with other members of the working group.
