Higher oil prices have caused rapid development in the Bakken oil field, centered in western North Dakota, leading to economic, social and environmental policy challenges. The Bakken Researchers’ Convening, hosted by the Strom Center of Dickinson State University, May 18-19, 2015, examined these challenges to begin to address the interdisciplinary problems faced by communities in the Bakken. This webinar highlights policy research gaps identified in seven broad categories: population and migration, labor markets, housing and construction, income and wealth, business, sociological factors and the environment, in addition to others.
