Polar Research and Policy Initiative

Launched in February 2016, Polar Research and Policy Initiative (PRPI) is an independent, international think-tank dedicated to Arctic, Nordic and Antarctic issues. Based in London (UK), PRPI seeks to facilitate a crucial, sustained, high-level and high-impact dialogue between scholars, policymakers, explorers, indigenous peoples, the media, and the public, private and third sectors about the Polar Regions. The five-fold aim of PRPI is to:

  • raise the profile and understanding of the Polar Regions in the UK, the US and the Commonwealth;
  • support polar researchers in increasing the visibility, impact and reach of their research;
  • increase and sustain the scholarly, cultural, political and commercial engagement of the UK and relevant EU and Commonwealth member states with the Polar Regions;  
  • help address some of the toughest political, social, economic and environmental challenges facing polar peoples and places;
  • facilitate greater bilateral trade and investment between Arctic states and key EU and Commonwealth states.
