Arctic ecosystems and human societies will be most strongly affected, but the environmental changes in the Arctic have global implications as well. How should these challenges be handled? Is managing the Arctic a global task or is it solely the responsibility of the Arctic coastal states?In this discussion with Norwegian Ambassador Kåre Aas, you will have the chance to address these questions, learn why the Arctic is Norway’s most important foreign policy priority, and debate how the United States should use its chairmanship of the Arctic Council next year.”The Ambassador will speak on this topic for about fifteen to twenty minutes, with the remaining time devoted to responding to questions from the audience. Please join us!
