Webinar Geostrategic Competition Arctic

In light of the “two-level” development in the Arctic region how can the EU make a major contribution to multilateral and peaceful exchange between the United States, Russia, China and other Arctic actors on security issues and a demilitarized development? What role can the EU take within existing institutional frameworks such as the Arctic Council to promote a common strategic and threat analysis on climate change and a common understanding of security dimensions in the Arctic?

We welcome you to join us in this online seminar on the subject of geopolitical competition in the Arctic! You will find a more concise programme below right. A KAS research paper on the subject written by Dr. Andreas Østhagen is also available below right.
