**__Please be advised: This event will premiere LIVE on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, December 15.__**

Join Hudson Institute for a discussion of how the newly elected U.S. administration will deal with the geopolitics of the Arctic and the consequences of rising tensions for the operations and tasks of the U.S. and its allies and adversaries. The conversation will be moderated by Senior Fellow, Liselotte Odgaard.

The Arctic region has become an arena for military-strategic positioning and sabre-rattling. Recent developments cause concern that the Arctic cannot be maintained as a low-tension region where cooperation dominates. Growing Russian military provocations and threats towards the U.S. homeland and China’s emerging economic, diplomatic and scientific strategic presence keep the U.S. and its allies and partners increasingly on the alert. The U.S. is ramping up its early warning and power projection capabilities and its diplomatic activities in the Arctic. The U.S. Navy is already back in the Arctic after being gone for 30 years, patrolling regularly in the region. In July 2020, the U.S. Air Force released its Arctic Strategy, outlining how the air and space forces will provide assets capable of conducting operations throughout the Arctic into the future. And as of late, the U.S. Army has announced that it is working on an Arctic strategy. These developments point to the growing importance of the Arctic region in US defense planning.
