Arctic Security in the 21st Century Conference

Co-convened by The Simons Foundation and the
School for International Studies, Simon Fraser University
April 2008

In 2007, revelations about the impact of climate change on the Arctic, as well as actual events in the Arctic, led to this region becoming the focus of international attention. Recognizing the importance of the subject to both national and global affairs, Simon Fraser University’s nascent School of International Studies, in partnership with The Simons Foundation, decided to engage in a voyage of intellectual exploration by examining different aspects of Arctic security and co-convened a dialogue conference around the various issues.
