Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program
"The foundation, projection and enjoyment of Arctic foreign rights require healthy and sustainable communities in the Arctic. In this sense 'sovereignty begins at home'" – Inuit Declaration on Arctic Sovereignty.
Our vision is for peacefully resolved disputes in the Arctic, global environmental security that supports a healthy Arctic environment, and an Arctic foreign policy that centres on the needs of those who live there.
A partnership between the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs and the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation, the Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program is dedicated to studying and promoting four overarching areas of concern:
- Emergency preparedness in the Arctic
- Arctic peoples and security
- The Arctic Council
- Public opinion in and about the North
The Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program undertakes original research and hosts interactive gatherings to achieve its vision.
