Three Images of a Changing Arctic and the Futures They Represent

This program is postponed

David Caron, C. William Maxeiner Distinguished Professor of Law, UC Berkeley; Author, Resolution of Private International Disputes

The Arctic is changing quickly. This year appears to be setting a record for minimum summer ice coverage, according to many reports. This presents valuable opportunities for some and great losses for others, because what was once hypothetical in the Arctic is now possible. As stakes rise, so does the interest of circumpolar states as well as distant China. According to Caron, people approach the Arctic with one of three images, and each suggests a different future, courses of action and solutions. Caron will discuss the impassable area, the ring and the enclosed ocean.
