CIC Vancouver Island: Politics in the Club “The Challenges of Securing Canada’s Arctic Frontier”

February 29 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST


The Vancouver Island Branch of the Canadian International Council (CIC) Presents “Politics in the Club” on Feb 29, 2024:

The Challenges of Securing Canada’s Arctic Frontier”

This event is the second of two “Politics in the Club” sessions focusing on Canada and the Arctic. In late-January, Peder Roberts encouraged participants to consider the reasons Canada should invest in Arctic science.

Our second session, to be held on Thursday, February 29, 2024 will shine the arctic light on a different perspective, that of protecting Canadian sovereignty in a geographic region of considerable military and economic significance.

Professor Will Greaves is an associate professor of international relations at the University of Victoria. His research focuses on global politics and security, climate change and energy, Indigenous peoples, Canadian foreign policy and the circumpolar Arctic. 

Professor Greaves is author of more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and has co-edited 2 books: Breaking Through: Understanding Sovereignty and Security in the Circumpolar Arctic and One Arctic: The Arctic Council and Circumpolar Governance.

The Politics in the Club Series enables CIC Vancouver Island Members to meet regularly to discuss foreign affairs and other policy issues in a comfortable setting. Each meeting is limited to just 24 CIC members. The all-inclusive entrance fee of $25 entitles participants to an (alcohol or non-alcohol) beverage, finger food, and a moderated discussion, guided by a renowned expert on the topic under discussion.
