The two days of discussion were informed by the Arctic Governance Compendium located at and a background paper prepared by the AGP under the leadership of Professor Oran Young, Steering Committee Chair. During the meeting, participants were challenged to engage the concerns of others and to focus on transcending current debates. Specifically, participants were invited to come to Tromsø to generate new thinking, envision new possibilities, and identify innovative steps to meet the challenges of a changing Arctic. The participants were extremely collaborative and their efforts impressive.

The AGP Steering Committee is now working on a final document. The AGP will share its results with a variety of audiences during its third phase which entails engaging the Arctic policy community and other stakeholders. This effort will be led by Dr. Robert Corell.

The meeting was funded by the Arctic Funders Group with support from Norwegian Barents Secretariat, the Research Council of Norway, the Weeden Foundation and the University of Tromsø.
