In 2021, for a two-year period, Russia will chair the Arctic Council, the leading intergovernmental forum promoting cooperation in the Arctic. It will do so whilst the region – and the world – grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, ongoing tensions between Russia and the West, and uncertainty over the intentions of China.
This event offers perspectives on Moscow’s agenda for the Arctic Council, as well the challenges and opportunities this could create for stability and security in the High North.
This event is organized in partnership with Loughborough University and the Henry Jackson Society.
