The Arctic is critical to regional stability. All Arctic states agree that peaceful cooperation is ideal; however, the possibility of future conflict is also a reality. The Arctic now occupies a central position within Chinese and Russian foreign policy. Russia is building up its presence in the Arctic and subsequently other Arctic nations are responding by increasing their Arctic footprint and capabilities. Cooperation or conflict centers on competition over strategic resources, maritime control, and geopolitical uncertainty. The 2021 Military Writers’ Symposium will explore various dimensions of the Arctic with aims at leading toward cooperation and regional security.
Presentation Title: Premier Partners: Past, Present, and Future Canada-US Cooperation to Address Threats Through, To, and In the North American Arctic.
