Imagining the concept of inclusive society: Arctic perspectives:
The Arctic has long been a diverse society consisting of indigenous peoples, members of settler societies and others. Modern-day immigration adds an additional layer of diversity. This Arctic diversity leads to a discussion on potentials of inclusive society, which involves contributions from both the host society (which in turn consists of both indigenous and settler societies) and the immigrant population. Long-time residents and immigrants need to learn about each other for influencing the acculturation or assimilations outcomes. This chapter examine several aspects of Arctic inhabitants, regardless of whether or not they are immigrants or not, and their adaptation capacity in a new era of precarizations. How the social challenges differ in various cities, is there any preconditions of inclusive societies, why it is important to evaluate the differences between Arctic cities.
Economic Resilience for hindering social exclusions:
The main aspect of chapter 2 will be labor market integration. Arctic cities have diverse economic resilience initiatives based on diverse success factors and challenges concerning labor market integration of immigrants. The socio-economic status of immigrants is one of the factors for social inclusion (Uusiautti & Yeasmin, 2019). Occupational diversity, unemployment and underemployment hinder economic integration. This chapter will highlight whether the economic resilience maximize the chances for being socially resilient.
Manufacturing social platform for reinventing evidences of social justice in the circumpolar North:
Chapter 3 will examine how the principles of social justice have been explained in immigration policies: is there any common social platform from reinventing evidences of social justice for immigrants in the North? What kind of initiatives have been taken in to account for analyzing regional migration regime in the North? Community voices are crucial for advocating social justice. How political participation would support integration in the north will be the key objectives of this chapter
