Programme theme: Multilateral institutions, key countries and regions

Building on our strong tradition of strengthening multilateral institutions, we convened an event in Brazil on New configurations of international order: values, principles, alliances and alignments which aimed to explore the importance of values and principles in world politics and identify strategic approaches to help strengthen a rules-based international order. In February 2016, we ran The Arctic in 2045: a long-term vision, examining the challenges to implementation of the values and principles of the Arctic Council’s vision statement in a changed Arctic of 2045, as well as the international avenues available to support the Arctic states and the Arctic Council in addressing these long term challenges.
