The Global Impact of the Russian Arctic: Opportunities for South Asia
7 September 2022
12:30—14:00
The growing geopolitical tensions between countries on the global political arena has prompted changes in the status of the Arctic region. Given the extent of global competition, countries are striving to implement a comprehensive security strategy that focuses on increasing their presence in different geographical and economic zones. The leading superpowers are attempting to build closer ties between countries within the framework of interregional cooperation. They emphasize a collaborative approach to cooperation in such areas as the economy, maintaining the international rule-based order, deterring potential rivals, developing trade relations, logistics, ensuring environmental prosperity, and risk management. For South Asia, the Arctic is a region that offers opportunities for research and resource policy. South Asia’s position and interests in this region raise many questions, but also underscore the importance of holding discussions at the international level in the new economic realities. What prospects exist for cooperation in the Arctic region? What new opportunities are being created for individual states that do not have direct access to the Arctic due to their vast distance from it?
