A central component of the ReSDA program operations is the wide scope of researchers and institutions involved. ReSDA is the largest social science research project every proposed for the Circumpolar North. There are 51 researchers at 29 universities in 9 countries that signed on to be part of this comprehensive research network. This brings together experiences and knowledge from a wide range of disciplines and countries. With representatives from around the Circumpolar North, including the United States, Canada, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Greenland, Iceland and Russia, researchers will have the opportunity to share information and compare results. As research projects develop, this will contribute to a more well-rounded understanding of the Arctic context.
