Arctic Geopolitics: History, Geography and Present Circumstances
This is a continuation of our enquiry into the political and climate change effects within the Arctic. This next study day will focus on sovereignty and how it affects all aspects of exploration. We are delighted to welcome back Dr Robert Headland and Lt. Commander John Ash, both from the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), part of the University of Cambridge.
Here is the information flyer and booking application form for the follow up Polar Exploration study day. The last one was very popular so it is suggested that you get your application in quickly if you are interested.
