Governance

Tradition & Transition is governed and equally represented by two bodies, the Nunatsiavut Government and Memorial University. The Executive Board assures administrative and financial oversight, while the Project Management Committee offers direction to the principal investigator and staff, reviews individual research projects for approval, and assists in the planning of events and publications. The Project Management Committee is structured with representation from all Nunatsiavut communities, including youth and Elders, with its members bringing a wide range of research interests to the table.

In addition to the governance structure, Tradition & Transition is working with the Inuit Qaujisarvingat (Inuit Knowledge Centre) at Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami to provide an independent evaluation of the partnership at strategic points on the project's timeline.

The current membership of the Tradition & Transition governing bodies is:
