Many thanks to the University of Nottingham United Nations Society for inviting me to give a keynote talk at their Nottingham Model United Nations (NOTTSMUN) conference today. I’m proud to say that one of their Secretariat team participated in the second Norwich Model Arctic Council for University last year and, inspired by that experience, selected the Arctic Council for one of the NOTTSMUN special simulations this year.
My talk was a shorter version of the lecture on Arctic political geography that I have this year to undergraduate students at the Scottish Association for Marine Science. It was a pleasure, and I hope that the NOTTSMUN delegates found it enlightening and enjoyable.
A copy of my presentation slides are available for download.
