The GPARC team analyzes the 1) role of domestic networks in shaping policy preferences and 2) the impact of multilateral assessments and decisions on these national preferences and networks. In other words, we analyze two policy traffic directions - from domestic networks in Washington, Moscow and Beijing and outwards to international forums on Arctic maritime politics and from the Arctic Council (or other producers of international policy positions) into these domestic networks.
The project is managed by Helge Blakkisrud and Elana Wilson Rowe.
