E-PUB: Uncharted Territory: Conflict, Competition, or Collaboration in the Arctic?
This publication includes a case study narrative and a case solution.
Learn how critical thinking skills for focusing on your key clients, establishing the broader context for your analysis, and challenging your key assumptions were applied in this case study.
Rising temperatures and reduced sea ice are creating an uncertain future for the Arctic, an area almost one and a half times the size of the United States. Climate shifts are spurring changes in the demand for natural resources, transportation routes, economic development, and demographics. Russia has warned that countries could be at war over Arctic resources within a decade. The dramatic change coming to the Arctic also offers opportunities to develop mutually beneficial, collaborative relationships to manage emerging challenges. A review of this case study would reveal which key critical thinking principles and techniques were used in answering the following questions:
- Who Are Your Clients?
- What Is the Broader Context for the Analysis?
- Can I Make My Case?
- Is My Argument Persuasive?
