This thematic issue of Indigenous Affairs examines some of the major oil and gas development projects that affect the lives and lands of indigenous peoples throughout the Circumpolar North, highlighting indigenous perspectives and concerns over such development. The contributors explore the processes of decision-making, social impact assessment and environmental review assessments in the face of proposals to build pipelines across Russia, Alaska, and Canada’s Yukon Territory and Northwest Territories, consider indigenous livelihood rights and oil development in northern Alberta; and examine the political and social mood over oil exploration in Greenland. While local experiences and responses to oil and gas development may not be universal, the contributors seek to understand how communities differ in their experiences, and what common perspectives, understandings and experiences they may share.
