The Arctic in a Post-Election World

Note: please submit any questions to polar@wilsoncenter.org

In recent years the Arctic has become the focus of increasing activity and attention due to a wide range of environmental, political, economic, social, and security factors. A U.S. administration under the leadership of President-Elect Joe Biden, as well as potential changes to the composition of Congress, may have profound consequences for U.S. Arctic policy and, as a result, for America’s relationships with both Arctic and non-Arctic nations. How might U.S. Arctic policy and posture change as a result of the U.S. election and how are these potential changes viewed from abroad?

Please join Wilson Center scholars and colleagues in a virtual roundtable discussion on the impacts and implications of the 2020 US election in the Arctic region. For related reading, please see the two links below.
