Round Table
The Arctic Territories: Specific Features and Strategic Development Subjects


Due to the high concentration of natural resources in the Arctic territories, for many countries one of the key goals regarding the Arctic region is the economic exploitation. The geopolitical significance of the Arctic region is also growing. However, exploitation of natural resources of the Arctic territories, let alone the strategic security, does not necessarily mean the creation of comfortable conditions and increase in the population living in the Arctic Circle.

These tasks can be solved through a fly-in/fly-out practice without building traditional permanently inhabited settlements, which is often beneficial for companies developing new fields. But this approach is not acceptable to all territories and may contravene long-term national interests in the Arctic region.

Topics to be discussed:

- What are the main types of the Arctic territories in terms of their development specifics?
- Various actors to develop the Arctic territories: how to achieve a balance between the interests of stakeholders?
- Does the Arctic need permanently inhabited settlements? What are the specific features of Arctic cities?
