by Michelle Saport  |   

Diane Hirshberg, professor of education policy and director of the UAA Center for Education Policy Research at ISER, and Lee Huskey, professor emeritus of economics, are two of the lead authors of chapters in the newly released Arctic Human Development Report (AHDR) II, published by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

The goals of the second volume of the AHDR-Arctic Human Development Report: Regional Processes and Global Linkages-are to provide an update to the first AHDR (2004) in terms of an assessment of the state of Arctic human development; to highlight the major trends and changes unfolding related to the various issues and thematic areas of human development in the Arctic over the past decade; and, based on this assessment, to identify policy-relevant conclusions and key gaps in knowledge, as well as new and emerging Arctic success stories.

AHDR II is available online at: http://dx.doi.org/10.6027/TN2014-567
