Senior Fellow Elizabeth Rosenberg, Adjunct Senior Fellow Dr. David Titley, and Alexander Wiker, a post-graduate fellow at Pennsylvania State University Dickenson School of Law, lay out the challenges and opportunities that face the United States as it assumes the chair of the Arctic Council in April 2015. For the brief window of opportunity that the United States has to shape development of the Arctic in this role, a task made particularly pressing by changes induced by climate change, this policy brief recommends that the United States devote increased time, attention, money and leadership to the Arctic; build foundations for sustainable and responsible economic expansion; ensure safety and security of Arctic oceans and borders; develop greater cooperation with Russia on Arctic matters; and forge long-term partnerships and new coordinating mechanisms.
