Munk School of Global Affairs

The Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs in cooperation with the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation released on tuesday public opinion research report on global perceptions of Arctic security titled: Rethinking the Top of the World: Arctic Security Public Opinion Survey.

The research concentrated on finding out how publics from the eight member states of the Arctic Council understand and frame Arctic issues and how they comprehend the issue of Arctic security. The research found out that the concept of Arctic security is no longer understood in terms of traditional definition of security, namely guarding against international threats, but is rather comprehended in terms of environmental protection and healthy, educated population.
