With climate change melting away the Arctic ice cap, multinational corporations, national governments, and indigenous corporations all see opportunities for development. More than geophysical factors, however, are motivating the drive to develop resources and infrastructure in the region. In this talk, Mia Bennett will explain how​ from Siberia to northern Canada, despite the importance of environmental factors, development remains politically and economically conditioned, locally negotiated, and cyclical rather than linear.
