Who we are

Migration in Harmony is a Research Coordination Network on Arctic migrations funded by the National Science Foundation. We are a network of researchers, practitioners, and traditional knowledge holders working to synthesize current research, jointly identify and prioritize research topics, and build collaborative project teams to support a resilient, just, and sustainable Arctic in motion.

What we do


We facilitate open communication and a safe space to share information, resources, and ideas across siloed disciplines of Arctic migration research


We integrate current research and initiatives of researchers, educators, and engineers working independently on migration topics related to Arctic coastal areas


We improve decision-support for Arctic coastal residents, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations in responding to the consequences of changing migration patterns


We nurture a sense of community within the network by enhancing education, training, and exchange opportunities for all members, from high schoolers to senior scholars

What we create

Knowledge is power only if it is made accessible and used towards cooperative solutions. MiH-RCN produces meeting reports, special journal issues, infographics, videos, and education materials on various topics related to the Arctic.

Where we gather

Researchers are stronger when we work together. That's why each year, MiH-RCN hosts webinars, workshops, conference panels, and one major network meeting. Explore our events to meet other researchers.

How we build community
In creating a community through in-person events and virtual networks, MiH-RCN thrives because of the diversity of its members. To accomplish our goal, we need traditional knowledge holders, natural scientists, engineers, student economists, social scientists, health professionals, cultural heritage workers, educators, and you.
