The guest lecturer of the Study Circle is Dr. Baozhi Cheng from Shanghai Institutes for International Studies (SIIS), China.

policy towards the Arctic, in particular concerning the governance of

government, especially from interest-concern to
contribution-orientation, and also on concrete project cooperation with
Russia and Nordic Countries do offer incentives relevant for governing
the Arctic, which he will address in more details in his lecture.

studies in SIIS sponsored by China’s Arctic & Antarctic
