Arctic Academic eTalks

Coming Soon!

The Arctic Academic eTalks are an academically-focused, bimonthly forum for open discussion (non-attribution) on key issues affecting the Circumpolar Arctic for scholars and practitioners from Canada, Finland, Iceland, Kingdom of Denmark (Greenland and Faroe Islands), Norway, Sweden, and the United States. This discussion will allow for a more robust exploration into scholarly aspects of Arctic defence and security topics.

The Arctic Academic eTalks include alternating academic presentations and open discussions (beginning in May 2021) with invite-only activities (beginning in June 2021) in which experts will be asked to tackle specific challenge questions related to the Arctic information environment.

The Arctic Academic eTalks is a collaborative effort co-hosted by USNORTHCOM “The Watch” Command Magazine and the North American and Arctic Defence and Security Network (NAADSN). Our Global Partners include United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM), United States European Command (USEUCOM), United States Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM).
