Governing the North American Arctic: Sovereignty, Security, and Institutions

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Olin Library, 107
Olin Library, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Over the last ten years, the Arctic has gained international attention as a barometer for climate change and global warming.  However, history has also shown that this region comes into sharpest focus in moments of global conflict and crisis; in this way, the Arctic can also be seen a gauge for geopolitical change.

In a Chats in the Stacks talk, Dr. Dawn Alexandrea Berry will discuss her new book Governing the North American Arctic:  Sovereignty, Security, and Institutions (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016) which brings together contributions from distinguished international academics, including the former Canadian National Defence minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and prominent Arctic leaders, along with official statements from diplomatic representatives of Canada, the United States, and Greenland.  In addition, Dr. Berry will highlight Cornell’s historic role in early Arctic exploration and the security of the region, and then discuss the present-day challenges of governance in the Arctic. 

Dr. Berry is a visiting scholar in the Department of History at Cornell University, and former postdoctoral fellow in foreign policy, security studies, and diplomatic history at the Einaudi Center for International Studies.

This event is sponsored by Olin Library.  Refreshments served.
