WFN Strategies recently participated in Hoover Institution’s third hosted work group, entitled “The Challenges and Opportunities of Arctic Security.

In an ongoing effort to solve the problems of a changing Arctic, the Hoover Institution brought together military, diplomatic, and scientific experts to engage in a series of discussions to address the strategic and security implications of increased activity in the Arctic. This series of discussions and workshops with scholars and experts identified ways in which to shape a safe, secure, and prosperous Arctic.

WFN Strategies provided distinct perspective leveraging experience in the submarine cable industry, including its current effort on Arctic Fibre and recent projects in Antarctica, as well as various offshore Oil & Gas systems.

The Hoover-Brookings team recognizes that many projects and studies have examined some security, resource, population, and environmental aspects of a changing Arctic. Its aim, however, is to differentiate, highlight, and provide coherent and thoughtful policy recommendations to address the effects and consequences of the changing environment.  As leading public policy research organizations committed to independent, high-quality, and high-impact analysis, the Hoover and Brookings Institutions are committed to the Arctic as an issue of national and international importance.
