The January 17-18, 2012 Conference will be a major event to discuss the way the Arctic Council should be developed. This is important in light of the fact that the Arctic Council has gone through a full rotation of chairs and because of the new challenges facing the region as climate change focuses the world’s attention on the Arctic now more than ever. The Conference will be followed by an online publication.

The Conference will feature original research contributions, but will also seek to engage decision-makers to debate these new ideas proposed by the researchers. The Members of the Arctic Council have expressed an interest in discussing new initiatives for the way forward and this project will help to inform that debate.
