For generations, the Arctic has captured our imaginations as a region of contradictions. It is simultaneously a frozen wilderness, home to indigenous peoples, a place of historic military tensions and an area of emerging economic opportunity that is eyed with much interest.

Promoting dialogue among Arctic states and peoples has been a great success, but the council must now adapt to tackle new and emerging challenges in this fragile region.
