Panel Organized by: Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami  

Canada is the only G7 country without an arctic science policy. The National Inuit Strategy on Research (NISR) calls for the development and implementation of an Inuit Nunangat research policy as one of the 27 actions. This panel is being convened to identify opportunities and discuss the advancement of this policy.

In March 2018, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) released the NISR. The NISR envisions research that empowers Inuit to meet the needs and priorities of our families and communities. We see achieving self determination in research as the means for ensuring that research governance bodies, policies, and practices are consistent with this vision. The NISR Implementation Plan, released in August 2018, provides a roadmap to accomplish this.

The panel will highlight the work we are doing and the work to be done on developing a comprehensive policy dealing with Inuit Nunangat research needs and objectives. The development of a comprehensive approach to coordinating and governing Inuit Nunangat research is required to remedy longstanding issues in this area. Short presentations will articulate some of the recent experiences, interests, and emerging processes related to Inuit Nunangat research and policy. These short presentations will be followed by a discussion among the panelists and with the audience.

The goal of this panel is to bring together a diversity of voices to learn more about Inuit perspectives and processes related to research, take part in a dialogue about Inuit Nunangat research, and provide an opportunity for conference participants to better understand each other’s role in science policy.
