At the interface between anthropology, human geography and the environmental humanities, the proposed project explores the analytical potential of “sacrifice zones” as a concept that illuminates the social, territorial and biopolitical dimensions of spatial planning and resource management in Norway and Estonia. Using qualitative ethnographic methods to investigate the emergence of such zones along the Arctic resource frontier and in Estonia – exploring issues of representation, environmental justice and political power – the project develops and refines a productive comparative theoretical framework for the future analysis of strategically important domains, including mineral wealth extraction, urban planning, energy infrastructure development and biodiversity conservation.

The aim of the project was to study resource extraction projects in the Norwegian Arctic using the concept of "sacrifice zone", to test the usefulness of the concept and develop a critical framework for further research. The project was successfully completed, resulting in a significant number of publications. The concept was found to be highly relevant, although underdeveloped in the literature: further publications and follow-up projects that develop its critical potential are currently under review. Results and findings from the project were also communicated at workshops, symposia and conferences in Estonia, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
