The Big Melt? Canada’s Interests in a Changing Arctic

Part of: In Pursuit of Knowledge - Spring

Course description

The Arctic continues to experience unprecedented ecological, political and social transformation, compounding the already dramatic changes of the 20th century. But the post-Cold War optimism around the possibilities for greater Arctic cooperation have given way to a period of prolonged uncertainty. In addition to new tensions among the eight Arctic states, non-Arctic countries—notably China—are pursuing robust circumpolar policies that call further into question whether the institutions for regional governance will be able to manage Arctic affairs in the coming years. In this context, what are Canada’s interests in the Arctic, and how can they be achieved? This presentation will place a Canadian perspective on the political, environmental, economic, social and security aspects of the “race for the Arctic”.
