Inter-Nord, founded by Fernand Braudel and Jean Malaurie, is not only bilingual, it is too the only interdisciplinary and international French arctic journal .
Published under the aegis of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (National Center for Scientific Research), the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Institute of higher education in the social sciences) and the Muséum National d'Histoire aturelle (National Museum of Natural History), Inter-Nord is directed by Jean Malaurie (French Arctic Center's Director) and an international committee

Volume 20, work of 34 specialists, is divided in to 9 sections : Earth And Ocean Sciences, Historical Sciences, Life Sciences, Social Sciences, the activity of foreign arctic research institutions, Museology, Geostrategy, biographies and an special section devoted to Ungava-Nunavik, newly self-governing region of north-eastern Canada.

The socio-economic study on Nunavik is of particular interest. It was conducted by seven experts who participate in the French-Quebecois Commission on the future of the Inuit in Northern Quebec - itself a product of the agreement between French President de Gaulle and the Prime Minister of Quebec, Donald Johnson. This pioneering Study, which has the support of Charlie Watt, who was to become Inuit Senator, was shelved for its audacity in 1970 by the relevant state department : it recommended self-determination for the Inuit people of Northern Quebec.

Its socio-economic analyses will surprise the reader, their findings revealing the harshness of the neo-colonial system at work in school, churches and commerce.
