Circumpolar Policy Tours
The Institute of the North has hosted productive and meaningful visits for Alaska’s leaders to neighboring Arctic states over the last five years with delegations visiting Norway, Iceland, Finland, Greenland, and to Chukotka.
Policy tours provide the opportunity to examine energy, resource and economic development lessons and best practices from northern nations while also sharing Alaska's interests and perspectives with international northern leaders. Participants bring new ideas and opportunities back to the state.
The 2016 Russia Policy Tour will feature visits to Moscow and Murmansk, and to relevant Arctic, economic development, shipping, energy and research organizations.
