Governance and public policy are broadly understood to include the study of formal and informal processes that regulate social, economic and cultural life in the North (e.g., multilevel governance, Aboriginal self-government, organization networks), as well as research bearing on salient policy challenges in Northern Canada (e.g., resource development, climate change, food security). Applicants should have a strong record of research in the North (Canada or elsewhere). The successful candidate will demonstrate an interest in developing, as part of their overall research agenda, a program of research in Labrador.
