2020 Henry Bacon Seminar

Bridging the Atlantic - Security in the High North

Friday April 3

The Henry Bacon Seminar is a long-standing bilateral tradition held in honor of the crew onboard the U.S. liberty ship SS Henry Bacon, many of whom lost their lives in a rescue operation in the Norwegian part of the Arctic in February 1945. Understanding the geopolitics of the Arctic is key to maintaining stability in a region of opportunities. The seminar aims at exploring how to approach the future of the High North in times of increased international attention.
