Globalization, urbanization, and demographic shifts present Arctic policymakers and residents with the opportunity to reinvent circumpolar development for the 21st Century. The pages to follow offer an analysis of that opportunity in the context of Alaska ahead of the US Arctic Council Chairmanship. The report is an expanded compilation of three web articles by The Arctic Institute. The first article, Investing in Place, explored how to create livable, localized places in a globalized North. The second, Investing in Innovation, considered the opportunities of urbanization for entrepreneurship and economic ingenuity. The third, Investing in Communities, looked at ways to sustainably connect the growing young and old sectors of Alaska’s population. Taken together in this report, globalization, urbanization, and population shifts provide a chance to redefine how we conceptualize, and realize, Arctic investment – a chance to turn economic growth into human development.
