New East-West Security: Northern Perspectives

30. januar, fredag
19.00
Ofelaš

The year of 2008 put a strain in the relationship between East and West in Europe. The level of distrust surged and security issues to a new extent came to dominate relations. As we enter 2009, uncertainties about future economic ties, security relations and political cooperation are abundant.
Coupled with rapidly changing international financial realities, relations between the European East and West could today be facing a period of new security challenges, as well as opportunities.
The situation in the High North has not stayed unaffected by the general trends in East-West relations. Still, some see this strategically important region as an area of continued prosperous relations, stability and constructive cooperation.
Some of the questions to be asked in the conference are: What are the new realities in the relationship between Russia and the West? How important is the High North in East-West security relations? What are the possible contributions of the Barents Region in big-power relations?

ICE-DOLBIUS – FARE GJEMT PÅ HAVETS BUNN
De siste topp-hemmelige forskningsresultater viser at det vi kaller “Global oppvarming” ikke eksisterer. Den største faren for livet på jorda er den biologiske arten “Ice-dolbius”. Denne fiskepopulasjonen kontrolleres av det russiske forsvaret og kan brukes som “klima-våpen”….
