Featured Quote: Oran R. Young

“The villages of the Circumpolar North suffer from serious social problems. More often than not, individual communities appear to have lost control of their own destiny; many of them lack both the capability and the will to regain that control.”

Oran R. Young, from Arctic Politics: Conflict and Cooperation in the Circumpolar North, 1992
