Elizabeth Riddell-Dixon
Professor Emerita, Political Science, Western University
Distinguished Senior Fellow, Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History, University of Toronto

In this talk, Elizabeth Riddell-Dixon will contrast the traditional political science concept of sovereignty to the Inuit concept of pan-Arctic sovereignty. She will illuminate debates about sovereign state rights and conflict over Arctic resources. This talk draws from her newly published book, Breaking The Ice: Canada, Sovereignty and the Arctic
