Maps provide a useful means of understanding the various ways a region can be seen - through its economies, cultures, politics, or histories. Further, maps allow for the visualization of development and change in a region. The Arctic Institute has begun a Map of the Month initiative to highlight the various ways our changing Arctic can be visualised. We showcase maps created by geographers, cartographers and organisations around the world. And we need your help to make a logo!
Pictures speak louder than words. The Arctic Institute envisions a world in which the diverse and complex issues facing Arctic security are identified, understood, and innovatively resolved. Rigorous, qualitative, and comprehensive research is the Institute's core for developing solutions to challenges and injustices in the circumpolar north. Sharing diverse maps with our audiences helps break down misconceptions about the Arctic as a peopleless tundra and educate on the Arctic's complexities.
TAI envisions a world in which the Arctic’s diverse and complex sources of insecurity are identified, understood, and innovatively resolved.

We do this through publishing high-quality, open access research on a range of issues relating to security in the High North; providing innovative policy analysis and recommendations to policymakers a
The Arctic Institute is an independent international institute dedicated to research of and engagement in the many dimensions of Arctic insecurity.
