To compete and thrive in the 21st century, democracies, and the United States in particular, must develop new national security and economic strategies that address the geopolitics of information. In the 20th century, market capitalist democracies geared infrastructure, energy, trade, and even social policy to protect and advance that era’s key source of power—manufacturing. In this century, democracies must better account for information geopolitics across all dimensions of domestic policy and national strategy.
In this event, students from across the Arctic and the rest of the world will pitch their work on ways to address challenges in the changing Arctic region, ranging from environmental issues to geopolitics. We will hear their 2-minute pitch, discuss the ideas, and select our winners. A Few ideas will then be incubated for further development.
