Diplomacy and Intrigue in the Arctic

Thursday, November 8

The Arctic region is undergoing profound changes, driven primarily by a warming climate.  The nations and peoples of the Arctic are struggling to adapt to these changes. Over the past decade–and despite all manner of friction in the relationship between the United States and Russia–a new international architecture for governing the Arctic is beginning to emerge. Ambassador David Balton, who has played a key role in building this architecture, will review the state of play and consider what may lie ahead in the coming years.
