The Arctic Council is the most important forum for international cooperation in the Arctic, but what is done in this cooperation forum is still less known.
There have been great ambitions for the Arctic Council, but these have not always been met. The Arctic Council is equally the most important premise provider for an active and knowledge-based debate about the challenges in the North.
The chairmanship periods of the Arctic states have resulted in different priorities, different levels of ambition and different ability to implement. In 2023, Norway takes over the chairmanship.
In this project, we take a closer look at opportunities and challenges in connection with the Norwegian chairmanship. The war in Ukraine has changed the scope of possibilities. What can the Arctic Council do now? We want to facilitate a well-informed academic and public discussion about the Arctic Council.
