Please join us for an important discussion regarding the economic, security and political dynamics in a rapidly changing Arctic. As over sixty percent of the Arctic lies within Russia's exclusive economic zone (EEZ), the Arctic is increasingly important to its economy, particularly oil and gas development and shipping. Our panel of experts will share their insights on current Russian strategies and policy development for the Arctic, Russia's engagement in the Arctic Council and how current events in Ukraine may or may not impact future cooperation in the Arctic.
To RSVP, please contact Terence Toland at TToland@csis.org.
The discussion will be ON the record.
