« Le Québec et l’Arctique »

In the recent past, Quebec has included an Arctic component in its International Policy. At the same time, Arctic governance has evolved, facilitating the entry of new players into the establishment of rules and standards for the Arctic region. This new governance opens up opportunities for a province like Quebec, both economically and in terms of identity. On the other hand, competition is increasing to make the most of a scene in which companies, sovereign states, non-governmental organizations and indigenous communities are intertwined. This conference will analyze the opportunities and obstacles that exist for an active presence of Quebec in the Arctic region.

The activity is free, but you must register by sending an email to :
