Bering Strait: Navigation and Conservation in Times of Conflict

Date & Time

Nov. 2, 2022
12:30pm – 4:30pm ET


Harvard Kennedy School, Belfer Building - Bell Hall, 5th Floor



The Bering Strait region is a particularly unique area - one of the Arctic's most productive and sensitive environments but also a region increasingly facing pressure and challenges. Amidst an upheaval in relations between Russia and the other Arctic states exist transboundary risks associated with increased vessel activity, which continue to advance despite these deteriorated conditions.  

Please join the Harvard Kennedy School's Arctic Initiative, the Wilson Center's Polar Institute, and the World Wildlife Fund in Cambridge, MA, and online for a half-day event on transboundary risk management in the Bering Strait region.
