This conference was held to address the question: How can we engage Russia in the shared pursuit of pan-Arctic security,
stability, and cooperation, while still holding it to account for its egregious violation of international law in invading Ukraine? The Simons Foundation Canada was a co-sponsor of the conference and Ernie Regehr, O.C., Senior Fellow in Arctic Security and Defence, was Chair of the Arctic Security panel.
