Wilson Center – The Arctic Ocean and Climate Change in a Time of Tension
The uncertainty in Arctic governance that resulted from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has extended beyond geopolitical effects in the region. Sustained cooperation amongst the Arctic states, except for Russia, has been key to sustain scientific research after the loss of a large geographic partner. Cooperation on the ocean and climate issues in the Arctic will continue to be essential moving forward. What does the future hold for efforts to understand and steward the Arctic Ocean?
Please join the Wilson Center’s Polar Institute and the Centre for the Ocean and the Arctic (Norway) for a discussion about research and ocean-related cooperation in the context of current geopolitical tension.
