About this book

This ground-breaking book investigates how Arctic indigenous communities deal with the challenges of climate change and how they strive to develop self-determination. Adopting an anthropological focus on Greenland's vision to boost extractive industries and transform society, Rethinking Greenland and the Arctic in the Era of Climate Change examines how indigenous communities engage with climate change and development discourses.

Rethinking Greenland and the Arctic in the Era of Climate Change applies a critical and comparative approach, integrating both local perspectives and adaptation research from Canada and Greenland to make the case for recasting the way the Arctic and Inuit are approached conceptually and politically. The emphasis on indigenous peoples as future-makers and right-holders paves the way for a new understanding of the concept of indigenous knowledge and a more sensitive appreciation of predicaments and dynamics in the Arctic.

Rethinking Greenland and the Arctic in the Era of Climate Change will be of interest to post-graduate students and researchers in environmental studies, development studies and area studies.
