The University of Iceland offers a course on the Arctic Circle. The objective of the course is to introduce the various challenges and opportunities in the Arctic that are discussed within the Arctic Circle, i.e. climate change and its effects on the region, economic opportunities, security in the Arctic, infrastructure, geology, energy issues, and more. The Arctic Circle has a wide network of experts based on their international cooperation, where scholars and practitioners from various institutions, universities, governments, environmental associations, indigenous communities, ordinary citizens and other interested parties attend the events of the Arctic Circle.
Students are required to deliver a paper on what was discussed during the panels they attend at the Arctic Circle. These reports are now accessible here below.
