Polar Research in Oxford
The University of Oxford is home to researchers studying the polar regions from all angles, with expertise spanning Anthropology to Zoology. Amongst other topics, Oxford researchers work on oceans and climate, ecosystems and the biosphere, Indigenous rights and environmental governance, language and culture, glaciers and sea ice. The Oxford Polar Forum exists to make connections across this incredible wealth of expertise, encouraging collaboration and knowledge sharing. We also seek to promote wider engagement with the polar regions and polar research. Though they may at times feel far away, these are regions of great natural and social significance.
