Immigrant Women and Their Social Adaptation in the Arctic

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Immigrant women and their social adaptation in the north need academic discussion. Immigrant women face continuous challenges in balancing their life in a new environment, and their challenges are as diverse as their backgrounds. Despite this variation in background, the obstacles to integration are remarkably similar across the board. The objective of this research is to find a dialectical relationship between the human ecology of immigrant women with the socio-ecological trend of the Arctic. This study analyses human ecology and social-ecological resilience in the context of the integration of immigrant women in a small Arctic territory, and the objective is to understand the interrelationships between these immigrant women and their surroundings. This study broadens our knowledge on how human actions influence and are influenced by social-ecological system (SES).
