International conference on the Arctic in Montreal

The conference The Arctic in Transition: Regional Issues and Geopolitics was held in Montreal 3-4 October.

How do we define the Arctic today? What issues are the eight circumpolar states dealing with? How are their local and national populations and industries adapting? These were among the questions which were addressed at the conference organized by the Center for Geopolitical Studies of the Raoul Dandurand Chair (UQAM), in collaboration with the Centre Jacques Cartier (France), ArcticNet (Université Laval,Québec) and the Northern Research Forum.


Geopolitics in the High North researcher Katarzyna Zysk from the Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies (IFS) held a presentation on the Arctic in Russian strategic thinking. Read more about the conference here.
