Recently, the Arctic has again become the arena for increasingly intense international competition. The militarization of the region is gathering pace.

  • What does the future hold?
  • Is there a chance to counterbalance competition with a modicum of cooperation, and thus prevent a major confrontation in the High North?
  • How is the Biden administration’s Arctic policy shaping up?
  • Is there any chance of positive Russian-American interaction during Russia’s two-year presidency of the Arctic Council, which starts in May 2021?

Join Eugene Rumer, a senior fellow and the director of Carnegie’s Russia and Eurasia Program and Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow Center, to explore these issues and more. To submit a question for the event, please use the YouTube chat or tweet at us @CarnegieRussia.
