Arctic Yearbook

A Letter from Lassi Heininen, Editor of the Arctic Yearbook, Concerning the Yearbook’s achievements and synergies with UArctic

The COVID-19 pandemic forces us to consider globalization’s dark side by bringing up new premises of security due to environmental degradation, climate change and pandemics as non-military threats that need to be applied comprehensively. It also supports the importance of scientific research and its applications, digitalization, distance-learning /-working, and open access material for knowledge-building, such as the Arctic Yearbook, when new & proper information is created and distributed for better understanding of global challenges & wicked problems.
