The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, and the retreating ice is offering once impossible access to minerals, various energy resources, and new sea lanes.
What are the implications of Arctic development for global energy needs, as well as for the nations that hold territory there? Join us for a conversation with experts representing several Arctic Council countries to assess the opportunities - and challenges - inherent in development north of the 49th Parallel.
Moderated by Center for Global Affairs clinical associate professor Carolyn Kissane.
