U.S.-Russian Relations in the Arctic by The Wilson Center published on 2017-03-21T18:31:27Z The Arctic is no longer an emerging region of interest; it is a dynamic and changing physical, social, economic, and political landscape that is home to over four million people. The Arctic remains a region of peace and continuous dialogue through multi-lateral, consensus building organizations such as the Arctic Council. The United States and Russia are Arctic nations with a complicated yet inherently linked history and future. How have these two Arctic superpowers cooperated in the past? How does each nation view its Arctic region? And what will the future of US-Russia relations in the Arctic look like? Arctic experts begin the conversation about these critical questions culminating in the next Arctic Forum to convene leading Arctic experts from around the world on June 21, 2017 in Washington, DC.
