Event type:
Panel Discussion / Speaker Series
On the web:

On Thursday, December 1st, the Strauss Center hosts Marisol Maddox, Senior Arctic Analyst at the Polar Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, for a talk on “Climate Changing Arctic Security: A Primer.” This talk will be held at the LBJ School of Public Affairs as part of the Strauss Center’s Brumley Speaker Series.

In her talk, Maddox will highlight how the historically frozen Arctic Ocean, warming at four times the global average due to accelerating climate change, is becoming more accessible. As a result of this shifting climate, the security outlook is shifting right along with it.

Geopolitical developments, such as Russia’s war in Ukraine, intersect directly with climate change to create complexity for not only the Arctic region, but for countries around the world. Join us to learn about the federal government is thinking about Arctic geopolitics and security through the new U.S. National Strategy for the Arctic Region, how the U.S. is balancing and protecting its equities in the region, Russia and China’s interests in the Arctic, and how actorless threats are complicating the international security landscape.

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. Lunch will be served. For more information on this event, contact Brittany Horton at
