CSIS is renowned as the leading center of Arctic research in Washington. Through research projects and analyses, it has produced countless reports and hosted senior level discussions with Canadian, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, and American officials on political, economic, and social development trends in the Arctic and their importance for the United States, Europe, and the transatlantic relationship. Its efforts have increased public debate on and awareness of Arctic issues among policymakers and research communities as well as timely recommendations on how U.S. policy and the international community should respond to changes in this dynamic region. CSIS’s research on the Arctic is conducted mainly by the Europe Program and the Energy and National Security Program.
