Wednesday 10 December
19h00 Room 301 - Arctic Inspiration Prize Awards Ceremony

Thursday 11 December
17h00 Room 105 - A Conversation with emeritus professor Donat Pharand
For over fifty years, Professor Pharand was Canada’s and indeed the world’s leading scholar on the law of the sea of the Arctic. Something of a visionary, Professor Pharand was already considering in 1955 the possible repercussions of increased navigation in the Arctic Ocean and in the early 1990s, was a strong and influential advocate for the creation of an Arctic Region Council. This moderated discussion led by Don McRae will be a rare occasion to chat informally with Professor Pharand on his life and career and the future of the Arctic region. The event will be crowned by the official launch of a collective volume honouring Professor Pharand’s immense contribution to legal scholarship on the Arctic.
