When we conduct research in the Arctic we are visitors in someone else's homeland: people who live there all year round, who have unique knowledge and wish to be involved in research concerning their land and ways of life. In this pair of webinars, arising from conversations at the 2017 Siberian Environmental Change Network (SecNet) workshop (arranged in cooperation with INTERACT), two speakers will build on their personal experiences to highlight ways in which researchers can successfully engage with local communities, from a Canadian and a Russian perspective.

Webinar 2: Lidia Rakhmanova, PhD in Sociology, Sociologist of the Center of Sociological Research, the State Hermitage Museum, associated member of the Sociological Institute of FCTAS RAS
