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."
