Multilateral forums in the Arctic region have incorporated a great diversity of actors (Indigenous groups, companies, non-governmental organizations, sub-national governments). It has been characterized by inclusive approaches to governance. Yet, gender issues have never been front and center in regional decision-making. This conference aims to highlight how the inclusion of gender perspectives and a more sustained emphasis on gender-related issues can contribute to a richer and more dynamic regional system of governance.
