Arctic research provides knowledge and understanding that are fundamental to informing policy and decisions in the North. The US Arctic Research Commission’s "Report on the Goals and Objectives for Arctic Research 2023-2024," presented to the president and Congress, establishes national Arctic research priorities and recommendations that, when achieved, will advance efforts outlined in our nation’s Arctic policies, strategies, and plans. The commission, an independent federal agency created by the Arctic Research and Policy Act, is a presidentially appointed advisory body.
Please join the Wilson Center’s Polar Institute and the US Arctic Research Commission for the public release of the commission’s new report. The event will include remarks from Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and senior officials from the White House, the National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, State Department, and from commissioners and staff.

The Institute holistically studies the central policy issues facing these regions—with an emphasis on Arctic governance, climate change, economic development, scientific research, security, and Indigenous communities—and communicates trusted analysis to policymakers and other stakeholders.
