IIASA Alumnus Exploratory and Special Projects
Tahnee Prior is a PhD Candidate in Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, University of Waterloo. She holds a Trudeau Foundation Scholarship and Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Her primary research seeks to understand what a legalized international governance structure that could account for the complexity and rapid change of the Arctic could look like and how we can get there from here. While at IIASA, Tahnee will be working with the Arctic Futures Initiative.
She is a team member of a Finnish Academy project on Human Security as a Promotional Tool for Societal Security in the Arctic; a contributing author to the Arctic Resilience Report (forthcoming 2016); and co-founder of Plan A, a platform that plugs into women's stories across the Arctic. Previously, she was the lead author of a Finnish Foreign Ministry project at the intersection of gender, climate change, and human rights.
