To our wonderful partners at the ACUNS
Secretariat, we begin with Alistair Edgar, who besides being a truly wise counsel, respected scholar, and one of the hardest-working people we know, is a hell of a nice guy (and we hear, a decent goalie).
(65.) Embracing the Elephant: Perspectives on Humanitarian Operations: A Policy Brief (A Workshop Report of the Academic Council of the United Nations System (ACUNS
) and American Society of International Law (ASIL) at 2 (arguing that humanitarian intervention without Security Council authorization, is often justified under the so called "right to intervene", hut this interpretation remains controversial), available at www.acuns.wlu.ca/publications (last visited September 23, 2004).
He has served on the boards of numerous organizations, including as chair of the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS
The Arctic Institute of North America and the University of Calgary will host the 11th Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies (ACUNS
) Student Conference, titled "Due North: Next Generation Research and Leadership," from 5 to 8 November 2015.
He died in 1982 before his friend Gene Lyons and others founded the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS
) and invited me as a then relatively junior scholar at the University of Dayton to be part of the ACUNS

They did so in the relatively short period of time since it was launched as the flagship journal of the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS
) to serve as a premier publication where key and insightful articles can be submitted by researchers and subsequently read by all who are interested in knowing about the latest research and thinking on global governance.
It became apparent during the workshop, and notwithstanding previous attempts to establish ethical standards for northern research (e.g., NSF-OPP, 1997; IASSA, 1998; ACUNS
, 2003; ICSU-WMO Joint Committee, 2011), that there is a pressing need for a single, comprehensive, and readily available document outlining the key guiding principles for research and development in the circumpolar North.
