Scientist with Heart of Explorer

Krasnodar, 9 March – Yug Times. Violetta Gassiy’s life resembles that of Indiana Jones — so much her solid scientific background and University work match with endless adventures and journeys to the remotest places of our planet.

Violetta Gassiy’s responsibility is to assess and analyze the negative impact of a concrete project upon traditional ethnic communities.

One of Prof. Gassiy’s main professional activities is assessment of socio-economic and environmental damages caused to the small-numbered indigenous peoples during the industrial assimilation of the Arctic Zone and the Far North.

She is Russia’s representative in the International Arctic Scientific Committee, working there in the workgroup of socio-humanitarian studies. Her academic task is to analyze and assess the negative impact that each concrete project may exert upon the traditional communities of indigenous peoples, whose culture and everyday life have for many centuries been built in the atmosphere of absolute seclusion and isolation from the rest of the world. Due to the ill-reasoned and uncontrolled intrusion to their lives, the contemporary civilization may irrevocably break their traditional way of life and economy which fact would lead to their social and cultural degradation.

“We are now facing the fact that the new generation of the Far North territories, being given all ‘civilization blessings’ and comfort, does not want to lead the traditional monadic way of life,” says Prof. Gassiy. “Their youth, like ours, want to live in warm permanent houses, work in cosy offices and sit in Internet networks. According to our polls, very few young people that live in the Far North want to continue to take up traditional trades and crafts and live a traditional way of life. So, globalization has not passed by the very edge of Russia.”
