US Strategy Arctic Region Next Decade

Full report

The United States seeks an Arctic region that is peaceful, stable, prosperous, and cooperative. The National Strategy for the Arctic Region articulates an affirmative U.S. agenda over the next ten years, from 2022 to 2032, to realize this vision. This strategy, an update of its 2013 predecessor, addresses the climate crisis with greater urgency and directs new investments in sustainable development to improve livelihoods for Arctic residents, while conserving the environment. It also acknowledges increasing strategic competition in the Arctic since 2013, exacerbated by Russia's unprovoked war in Ukraine, and seeks to position the United States to both effectively compete and manage tensions.

Realizing our vision during this dynamic and challenging period will require U.S. leadership at home and abroad. We will advance U.S. interests across four mutually reinforcing pillars spanning both domestic and international issues.

NATO Summit 2021: The Arctic Can No Longer Be an Afterthought

The Alliance has rightly focused on bolstering collective defense in the Baltic Sea and Black Sea regions, yet still has not agreed on an Arctic security policy.

During the summit, NATO should officially acknowledge its role in the Arctic for the first time, and agree to work with allies to develop a NATO Arctic strategy.

The EU's geopolitical awakening in the Arctic | EPC - Apr. 11, 2022 |

Decades of exceptionalism, characterised by cooperation and peaceful dialogue, branded the Arctic a "pole of peace". Today, it is fast transforming into a `pole of instability' as geopolitics return to the High North and great power politics start to dominate this region. As the Arctic becomes a space for geopolitical competition, sharpened by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the battles will be carried out in five areas: the chase for natural resources, the rivalry for supremacy, the contest for trading routes, the race for tourism opportunities, and the run for salvaging the environment of the Circumpolar North.  

Since Mikhail Gorbachev's icebreaking Murmansk speech in 1987, the Arctic has been considered to be an "exceptional" region of peace and cooperation in security studies.
