Virtual Event | The Dynamics of a Changing Arctic

Please be advised: This event will premiere on this page at 8:00 a.m. EDT, Thursday, August 19. Register for the event here.

Join Hudson Institute, The Danish Foreign Policy Society, and Naval Team Denmark for a discussion on the swiftly changing dynamics of the Arctic region. The Arctic has become central to shifting great power dynamics, economic opportunities and challenges, and efforts to fight climate change. These developments are causing dramatic shifts in relations between states, and in the practices and priorities of multinational resource extraction companies, the shipping industry, international institutions, militaries, and the defense community. How can we expect these dynamics to continue to evolve? Join Hudson Institute for this important discussion.
