Title: Canada and the Arctic Council: Terry Fenge

What has been accomplished under Canada’s chairmanship of the Arctic Council, which began in 2013? What is the Council’s role in an age of intense competition for the natural resources climate change is making accessible? What are the prospects for deepening international cooperation on arctic issues? And what are the implications for the Council of the West’s strained relations with Putin’s Russia? Terry Fenge, an expert on arctic, aboriginal, and environmental issues, addresses these questions.

Speakers: Terry Fenge is an Ottawa-based consultant and from 1996 to 2006 served as Strategic Counsel to the International Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference (now Council).
