|Abstract:||Experts Weigh In on Emerging International Policy Issues Facing the Arctic Region. |
Can rival nations put aside disagreements in other parts of the world to cooperate on critical Arctic policies? Will a "precautionary management" approach help minimize the negative consequences of a warming climate for the region's biodiversity? How can indigenous Arctic peoples be included more centrally in decision-making about the region? These are some of the issues raised in Voices of the Future, a new series of web essays by several emerging experts who participated in the fall 2020 virtual North Pacific Arctic Conference, or NPAC. The annual meeting is organized by the East-West Center and supported by the Korea Maritime Institute.
"Addressing the Arctic's immense future challenges will demand the talents and dedication of a highly knowledgeable new generation of leaders," said East-West Center Adjunct Senior Fellow Nancy Lewis, who spearheaded the NPAC Fellows program. "One of the main goals of our conference is to helping to develop a diverse and inclusive cadre of such future thought leaders, and this was the inspiration behind providing younger NPAC Fellows with this special forum."
