The Arctic Dialogue is an information exchange forum initiated by the Alfred Wegener Institute in 2013. The forum offers the opportunity to strengthen and foster an open dialogue between those invested in Arctic research and politics and provide the German Federal Ministries and Agencies access to relevant findings, field experiences and international contacts. The support and further development of this forum is one of the key tasks of the German Arctic Office.
Twice a year, the German Arctic Office, in cooperation with a host Ministry, organizes a meeting covering current issues related to policy and research in the Arctic. Representatives of relevant German Federal Ministries, research institutes and NGO’s attend the meetings.
