Foreign Affairs. The workshop was the final activity of the research project ENSINOR (Environmental and Social Impacts of Industrialization in Northern Russia). Among the participants were indigenous
representatives, oil and gas industry workers, NGO representatives, government personnel, and a mix of natural and social scientists. The ENSINOR project was funded by the Academy of Finland 2004-2007 and coordinated by the Arctic Centre.
