Title: Including The North
A Comparative Study of the Policies on Inclusion and Equity in the Circumpolar North
Author: Beaton, Mhairi C.; Hirshberg, Diane B.; Maxwell, Gregor R.; Spratt, Jennifer
Abstract: This book celebrates the University of the Arctic Thematic Network on Teacher Education for Social Justice and Diversity. The Network was established in Ulan Ude, Republic of Buryatia in Russia, in 2015 with six founding member organisations from Finland, Canada, Russia, Scotland and Mongolia. Led by the University of Lapland, the Network is finding its feet and gradually establishing itself. In three years, it has grown quickly and currently hosts 22 organisations that share interest in promoting social justice and resilient societies through teacher education. The Network now includes institutions from all of the eight Arctic countries as well as Scotland, Mongolia and France. The Network is in line with the Finnish Chairmanship of the Arctic Council’s priority area of education. From 2017 to 2019, the Arctic Council’s Sustainable Development Working Group hosted the project ‘Teacher Education for Diversity and Equality in the Arctic’, which emphasises that teachers are the key factor in providing a quality education. To promote sustainable communities, teachers who work in the Arctic and in northern communities must be committed to their work and be inspired by the Arctic. The project has strengthened the Network of education specialists in the Arctic in cooperation with the University of the Arctic. This book is part of that project’s outcome and an excellent example of global networking.
