Session description: Russia has been signi ficantly increasing its military footprint in the Arctic for the past 10-1 5 years. It has been reopening old military bases and building up its post ure around the nuclear-capable submarines that constitute its second strik e capability. The Arctic is of high strategic value for Russia’\;s gl obal power projection\, which Russia pursues at the expense of good relati ons to its neighbours.


This p oses a dilemma for the Nordic countries\, which have been committed to kee ping the Arctic a zone of peaceful cooperation. However\, since RussiaR 17\;s full-scale invasion the latest\, the military dynamic in the Arctic cannot be excluded from the Nordic countries’\; Arctic policy conside rations. With Finland and Sweden joining NATO\, the Arctic is increasingly also on the alliance’\;s agenda. The panel therefore looks into Russ ia’\;s military posture in the European Arctic and how the Nordic cou ntries and NATO allies should respond to it. What are the risks of conflic t in the High North? How should NATO calibrate its deterrence in the Europ ean Arctic? What role should the United States and United Kingdom adopt in the regional security framework?
