On this week’s news round-up, we bring you some of your most read stories on Eye on the Arctic this week, and it was pretty much all Arctic Council, all the time:
-Arctic expert Heather Exner-Pirot looks at the Arctic Council winners and losers, and some of her conclusions may surprise you.
– Arctic indigenous peoples warn the international community that continued tensions with Russia could erode progress made on circumpolar cooperation since the end of the Cold War
– The U.S. lays out a climate-focused agenda as it takes over the chairmanship from Canada
– Mia Bennett, from the Cryopolitics Arctic News & Analysis blog, compares the Iqaluit ministerial to the 2013 ministerial in Kiruna, Sweden
-And before we go, we’ll leave you with the one non-Arctic Council story that dominated our headlines this week, and that’s a report from the Barents Observer looking at Soviet-era nuclear submarine pollution in the North
That’s all from us this week! We’ll be back on Monday with more stories and newsmakers from across the North.
