The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center hosted an international gathering of scholars and policymakers who discussed the challenges of effective maritime governance during the two-day “Governing Across the Waves” workshop September 26-27, 2016.

The workshop welcomed official delegations from the coast guards of Argentina, Chile, Japan, and Indonesia, as well as representatives of the Russian Ministry of Transportation, and Arctic scholars from across the U.S., Canada and European Union.

They discussed best practices in maritime governance, with an overarching purpose of better preparing the U.S. and Russia to grapple with emerging challenges in the Bering Strait region. More about the workshop here.
