India in the Arctic

Join event

India's growing global role has implications for Norway, especially in the Arctic. 

India’s role in global politics is on the rise. India’s development trajectory, coupled with its strategic location and non-aligned history, prompts the need to take a closer look at India’s role in the world. For Norway, the Arctic emerges a primary arena for interaction with India.

India has an Arctic policy from 2022 and its increasingly expressing an interest in this part of the world, in tandem with its global rise. This poses certain opportunities, but also challenges, for Norway – which defines the area as the country’s most important strategic priority.

Join us for expert insights and discussions with key speakers from both nations.
