Actors, Networks & Issues
What is meant by actors, networks and issues?
The Arctic is constructed as a specific issue on the Internet. We are interested in letting Google demarcate the Arctic Issue sphere - both the popular issue sphere and the scientific issue sphere. We are particularly interested in the actors who do the Arctic as a scientific issue and therefore mostly focus on the network of co-linking scientific institutions, which forms around the Arctic as a scientific issue.
Exploratory scope 1
We explore who the primary actors are in the Arctic controversy by investigating what kind of issue network that forms around the Arctic both as a popular issue and a scientific one. We also suggest an analysis of the co-linking behavior of the primary scientific actors.
