Arctic security takes many shapes and the Polar Institute explores this idea in its many forms: national security, homeland security, community security, water and food security, and health security. The Institute addresses these issues while concurrently highlighting the complex set of issues emerging within the Great Power Competition in the Arctic between the United States, Russia, and China. These “securities’ of the Arctic will evolve as more actors enter the region and global tensions elsewhere continue to challenge the idea of a peaceful Arctic region and related governance and cooperative structures. .
