The Arctic and Antarctic regions continue to undergo dramatic change with global political, economic, social, cultural, scientific, environmental, and security implications.

The Wilson Center's Polar Institute will host its second edition of the Polar Week, to explore, analyze, discuss, and inform many of these important issues and dynamics. Through several public events, the July 2020 Polar Week will address: maritime activity in the Bering Strait; Canada's Arctic and Northern Policy Framework; the European Union's Arctic policy, ; the complex relationship in the Arctic between the United States and Russia; Marine Protected Areas in the Southern Ocean, and; the launch of the inaugural edition of the Wilson Center's Polar Perspectives publication series.

This edition of Polar Week is held in partnership with the Embassy of Canada, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, World Wildlife Fund, the Arctic Economic Council, the Institute of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth College, the UArctic Institute for Arctic Policy, Pew Charitable Trusts, US Arctic Research Commission, and with support from the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute, Environmental Change & Security Program, Canada Institute, and China Environment Forum.
