The Arctic region sits at the crossroads of major trends that contribute to reshaping the foreign policies of the European Union, Norway and Canada: it is home to significant geopolitical rivalries expressed by its neighbouring powers, and it also witnesses dramatic environmental and socio-economic changes to its structure and ecosystem. What common views do Europeans and Canadians share about these global challenges? How can they work together towards addressing them? What form should this multilateral cooperation take?
This webinar brings together high-level officials and experts from both sides of the Atlantic to share their views on the matter.
