The Arctic: Energy & Geopolitics

Subscribe and Listen

This week, Heather Conley (Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic; Director, Europe Program) joins Jane Nakano and Edward Chow (Energy & National Security Program) to discuss the growing economic, strategic, and energy importance of the Arctic. With increased access to Arctic resources comes increased interest from states like Russia and new players like China. Up for discussion: what to expect from recent Sino-Russian cooperation, whether the United States is likely to develop a comprehensive Arctic strategy, and the next possible steps for other Arctic Council members to address these new concerns.
