Project Details


Rural and island communities have long faced the problem of the out-migration of young people, who leave their local areas to pursue education and employment opportunities elsewhere. This project will explore the ways in which Arctic region countries address these challenges; and will identify policies, interventions and good practice that might be adopted, or adapted, in the Scottish context. It will consist of a review of relevant academic, government, third sector, and ‘grey’ literature, and a series of online interviews, with experts and other stakeholders from across the region, that will explore the issues and potential solutions in greater detail.
