Vice-Chair Gudfridur Lilja Gretarsdottir at Duputy Minister meeting in Stockholm

Vice-Chair Gudfridur Lilja Gretarsdottir represented SCPAR at the Arctic Council Deputy Ministerial Meeting in Stockholm 15 May 2012.


In her intervention Ms. Gretarsdottir voiced support for the proposal to draft a statement at the next Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting in Kiruna 2013. The Kiruna statement will mark a new turn of Chairmanships in the Arctic Council and  create a vision of the Arctic beyond the next chairmanships. This proposal is very much in line with the proposal from the Arctic parliamentary conference in the European Parliament in September 2010 and among the proposals advocated in the work SCPAR is currently working on regarding Arctic governance.
