Back to the Future: The Geopolitical Centrality of the North Atlantic and Arctic
Please join us on Wednesday, May 16 for a conversation with H.E. Gudlaugur Thór Thórdarson, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Iceland. Iceland sits at a critical geostrategic position for both NATO and the transatlantic community: an entry point the North Atlantic and adjacent to the Arctic Circle. With NATO's recent commitment to create an Atlantic Command and as the alliance prepares for its July Summit in Brussels and upcoming Trident Juncture exercise in Norway, Iceland will play a key role in maintaining a secure North Atlantic. Minister Thórdarson will also speak to Iceland's priorities as the next Chair of the Arctic Council, as well as China's growing economic influence in the North.
