Carina Keskitalo, Arcum-affiliated professor in political science, holds a seminar about
Mistra Arctic Sustainable Development - Sweden's first Arctic social sciences and humanities research programme?

Carina Keskitalo was the research lead for the second, programme, phase of the initiative, and discusses both the composition of a Mistra programme, the political context of research, and results from the programme. The seminar will be held in English.
