The Fletcher School Opening Arctic Conference

2016 Conference - March 12th

The Opening Arctic Conference builds on the Fletcher School's Warming Arctic International Inquiry series, to bring together high-level thought leaders from across disciplines, Fletcher’s hallmark. Staged annually, Fletcher’s event continues to address the foreign policy, economic, environmental and security implications of the opening Arctic, while dispelling myths.

The conference is scheduled to take place on 12 March 2016.

Online registration for the conference has closed, but please feel free to register at the registration desk on Saturday!
