Future of Ice: Tony Penikett
This event is sold out. Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to bringing you similar events in the future.
The climate isn’t the only thing changing in Alaska and Canada’s northern territories. New forms of governance are taking shape, upsetting the old hierarchies of federal, provincial, state, and local governments in the process. Tony Penikett, in his lecture Arctic Populations, Northern Security Issues and Emerging Forms of Governance, will discuss these changes while forecasting what they might mean for the future of the region.
Tony Penikett is the 2013-14 UW Canada Fulbright Visiting Chair in Arctic Studies.
Cost: Free, but advance registration is required.
