Join the Wilson Center for Polar Week, an event that aims to explore, analyze, discuss, and inform important issues and dynamics in the Arctic. The Arctic and Antarctic regions continue to undergo dramatic change with global political, economic, social, cultural, scientific, environmental and security implications. Through several public events, the July 2020 Polar Week will address: maritime activity in the Bering Strait; Canada's Arctic and Northern Policy Framework; the European Union’s Arctic strategy; the complex relationship in the Arctic between the United States and Russia; Marine Protected Areas in the Southern Ocean and the launch of the inaugural edition of the Wilson Center's Polar Perspectives publication series.
