Results from the International Polar Year GAPS Project (Gas, Arctic Peoples and Security) comparing research from Canada, Norway, and Russia with that from the USA, about the local impacts of oil and gas development will be presented. Together with Simona Perry (Dickinson College, PA), Gabrielle Slowey (York University) and Andrew Tanentzap (Landcare New Zealand), Hoogensen asks if a Human Security Framework can effectively mobilize academic research in the natural and social sciences into policy.
