Can the United States and its allies cooperate with Russia, China and other Asian nations during times of tense relations — or will cooperation on common interests in the Arctic succumb to the more familiar geopolitical tensions of the Cold War era? Please join us at Stimson as Vice Admiral Charles Michel, the Vice Commandant of the United States Coast Guard, will deliver a keynote speech on the new Arctic Coast Guard Forum established to promote maritime safety and security cooperation in the Arctic.
Following VAdm. Michel’s presentation, a panel of experts will discuss the progress and challenges to future East-West cooperation in the Arctic region.
