What does maritime deterrence look like in the High North? What is the right balance to deter Russia without escalating? What lessons can be learned and applied from recent Navy and Allied exercises and operations? These questions inform how the US and its Allies characterize, prioritize, and implement naval strategy in the High North, and are of utmost importance during ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
Please join the Wilson Center’s Polar Institute and the Center for Maritime Strategy for an event exploring these questions and more. “Deterring Russia at Sea in the High North” will dive into strategic and operational considerations in achieving naval deterrence. The first panel will explore the challenges posed by Russia in the High North, and the strategic interests involved, and the second panel will feature senior leaders’ perspectives on developing and implementing strategy and operations.
