Arctic Governance: co-operation and power tactics
Organised by Arctic Frontiers and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs

A roundtable discussion on Geopolitics in the Arctic organized by Arctic Frontiers and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs moderated by Stephen Sackur

The Arctic is marked by extensive cooperation at many levels, underpinned by the Arctic Council and the international legal framework provided by the Law of the Sea. People in the Arctic have cooperated, traded and engaged in common projects for thousands of years.

Geopolitical strategies of strong powers have the potential to create new precedents for the Arctic and conflicts outside the circumpolar region can have Arctic spillover effects. Will novel technologies and ‘hybrid warfare’ create new challenges in the Arctic? What mechanisms are needed to ensure Arctic cooperation is insulated from conflicts in other parts of the world?

Introduction by Ulf Sverdrup, Director of the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs

Organised by Arctic Frontiers and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs
