Dr. Aki Tonami, researcher at the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, University of Copenhagen. Her main research areas include Japan’s international relations and environmental governance.
Mia Bennett, a Gates Scholar researching polar issues at the University of Cambridge. She is an expert on Korea’s interests and ambitions in the Arctic.
