Reflections and Challenges in the South

How will the Antarctic Treaty System meet the challenges ahead?

Together with a panel of young researchers, Dr Tony Press, an eminent speaker on Antarctic security and environment, will discuss changes in the Antarctic Treaty system over the past 25 years, and explore scenarios for what may lie ahead for the southern continent in an uncertain and conflicted world. What impact may the Russia-Ukraine conflict have on the far south? What role may China play in the future of Antarctica? What of climate change and other significant environmental challenges?

Panelists will include Dr Indi Hodgson Johnson from the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science and Bruno Arpi from the Faculty of Law at the University of Tasmania.
