Abstract

The Vuosaari Harbor Endeavor (VHE) from Finland has been chosen to one of the cases examined in connection with the Mega-projects Planning in Circumpolar North -research project (MPPCN). In connection with VHE a new large scale cargo harbor was planned and constructed in an ecologically and socially significant and delicate environment. The new harbor has been in operation since 2008. It took over 40 years from initial ideas to harbor opening. The history of VHE, with all its environmentally motivated struggles, conflicts and crises and other nuances, provides an excellent case for the interest of MPPCN to examine how a mega-project becomes deliberated, planned and implemented in such a manner that technical, economic, ecological and social expectations are recognized equally and governed reliably into positive outcomes with minimum harms.
