Synopsis

At the request of Congress, the U.S. Navy released its updated Arctic strategy in April 2019. This "strategic outlook" describes the U.S. Navy’s approach to securing U.S. national interests and promoting stability in the Arctic. Please join us for a panel discussion featuring faculty from the Naval War College’s Arctic Studies Group on the updated strategy and what it means for America's Sea Services—the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

This event will be webcast live here.

You can submit your questions for the panel live on Twitter to @walterberbrick.
