About this book

Introduction

This book constructs a multidisciplinary approach to human security questions related to digitalisation in the European High North i.e. the northernmost areas of Scandinavia, Finland and North-Western Russia. It challenges the mainstream conceptualisation of cybersecurity and reconstructs it with the human being as the referent object of security.

Mirva Salminen conducts her doctoral study on digitalisation and cybersecurity in the European High North at the Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, Finland. Previously, she has carried out research for several organizations in both public and private sectors, including universities, research institutes and corporations, publishing primarily on cybersecurity and security commercialisation.

Gerald Zojer is Doctoral Candidate at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Lapland, Finland. His most recent work relates to the interconnections between socio-economic development in Arctic communities with global economic trends and the adaptation to new technologies in the region.

Kamrul Hossain is Research Professor and the Director of the Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law (NIEM) at the University of Lapland, Finland. He has led several international and national research projects with focus on human rights and human security in the Arctic and published widely in these topics.
