As Arctic nations continue to take concrete steps to work together and address public policy research questions relevant to addressing shared challenges and opportunities, the Fulbright Arctic Initiative offers a collaborative model for scholarly exchange to help translate theory into practice and policy. Nineteen scholars have conducted individual Fulbright research with host institutions in one another’s countries and joined together to collaborate on producing policy recommendations in three key areas:
- Arctic Security and Cooperation
- Arctic Infrastructure in a Changing Environment
- Community Dimensions of Health
Please join the Wilson Center and the Fulbright Program for a Symposium on Science Diplomacy in the Arctic, as Fulbright Arctic Initiative Scholars from the United States and the seven other Arctic nations -- Canada, Kingdom of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia and Sweden -- present policy recommendations based on key findings from their Fulbright research and collaborative group work over the past two years, and discuss the Indigenous foundations of Arctic knowledge.
