The Polar Institute highlights the many forms of Arctic security, including human security, environmental security, health security, and military security. While addressing issues like national security, homeland security, community security, water and food security, the Institute explores 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 with related governance and cooperative structures.

The Polar Institute and the Arctic Domain Awareness Center are pleased to announce the creation of a new series of programs entitled Arctic Security Dialogues. The Dialogues will address a broad spectrum of security issues to include, but not limited to national security, homeland security, and the many components of civil security. The first program in the Arctic Security Dialogues series was "United States Department of Air Force Arctic Strategy: Perspectives and Insights."
