Courses updated in September and January each year for Fall and Winter enrolment.
Dr. Byers, UBC Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law, is a frequent CBC commentor and has published numberous books including one entitled "Who Owns the Arctic?" His presentation addresses these questions: Who actually controls the Northwest Passage? Who owns the trillions of dollars' worth of oil and gas beneath the Arctic Ocean? Which territorial claims will prevail - those of the U.S., Russia, Canada or the Nordic nations and why? And, in an age of rapid climate change, how do we protect the fragile Arctic environment while seizing the economic opportunities presented by the rapidly melting sea ice? Instructor: Dr. Michael Byers
