What:

The East-West Center and the Korea Maritime Institute have organized the 2019 North Pacific Arctic Conference (NPAC) on Global-Arctic Interactions: The Arctic Moves from Periphery to Center, to take place at the East-West Center from August 14 – 16, 2019. NPAC, now in its ninth year, provides a venue for off-the-record engagement among policymakers/practitioners and scientists/analysts regarding Arctic issues of mutual interest to leading North Pacific Arctic states (Canada, Russia, and the United States) and non-Arctic states (China, Japan, and Korea). It aims to provide early warning regarding emerging policy issues and to promote improved understanding of major options for addressing them among these six states both in the setting provided by the Arctic Council and in other contexts. All six states are members of the G-20. Together, they account for more than 50% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions as well as a large share of global commerce.

A cohort of nine Early-Career Arctic Research fellows will participate in NPAC 2019 in pursuit of NPAC’s goal to attract and involve the next generation of policy and science leaders. Support for the fellows comes from the US National Science Foundation, the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, the Korea Maritime Institute, and the East-West Center.

Participation is by invitation. Please direct any questions to East-West Center Program Officer, Mr. Jaymen Laupola.
