This report provides a comprehensive overview of the issues related to the changing Arctic for state and national policy-makers as well as the public. It is set up as an overview that frames the issues and outlines their intersection with US national and Alaskan interests. Understanding and managing a changing Arctic will require Americans to become accustomed to thinking of their country as an Arctic nation. By raising awareness in the public sphere about Arctic issues and stimulating discussion, Commonwealth North believes that it can prompt the state and the nation to take action to bring about a desirable future for the Arctic.
