2015 (English)In: The new Arctic / [ed] Birgitta Evengård, Joan Nymand Larsen, Øyvind Paasche, Cham: Springer, 2015, 175-187 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The Arctic has long been subject to the effects and influences of increasing globalization. Yet while globalization is a commonly used term to account for and explain dramatic and wide-reaching changes and transformations, it is also a commonly misapplied one, evoking a range of meanings, from negative impacts to positive trends in the contemporary world. In this chapter, we cast light on globalization processes in the Arctic and then sharpen our focus on the diversity of identities in the region. In this way, we illustrate a complex reality that contradicts the logic of previous nationalizing state developments and current ethnopolitical movements that describe resources and people, communities and wider regional populations in certain and often very prescribed ways.
