Social policy of the government and companies in the Arctic

Project*

 


According important indicators of level and quality of life the Arctic regions lag behind other subjects of the Russian Federation. The result of this fact is the exodus of the population from the regions of the Far North, the shortage of qualified personnel and the outflow of labor force. It is necessary to create favorable conditions for a comfortable living in the Arctic, a serious modernization of the social infrastructure and many other things in order to overcome the socio-economic imbalance. Not only the Government, but also enterprises that carry out economic activities in the macro region, must be involved in this process.

Issues for discussion:

  • Creating favorable conditions for comfortable living in the Arctic
  • Developing the social infrastructure of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation
  • Social responsibility of companies operating in the Arctic zone
  • Stimulating internal labor migration and reducing the outflow of qualified personnel
