The New Arctic: Navigating the Realities, Possibilities, and Challenges

It is well established that the Arctic is warming at an alarming rate and, as a result, the region has and will continue to experience dramatic changes, including: opportunities and challenges to Arctic and Indigenous communities; an increase in Arctic Ocean shipping activities; expanded opportunities for resource development; and the potential for conflict in what has been a region with low military tensions. Additionally, non-Arctic states have increased their interest and activities in the area, further underscoring the importance of the new global Arctic.

The Wilson Center was pleased to participate, with colleagues from various organizations and programs, to inform a report by the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University. The report explores the new, dynamic Arctic and ways in which policies and partnerships may be developed to guide Arctic diplomacy in the decades to come.
