Arctic in Context, a World Policy Institute online initiative directed by Erica Dingman, provides needed context on Arctic issues at a crucial time for the region. In debuting this new initiative, World Policy presents Part II of an interactive timeline series documenting the rich history of the Arctic region. This timeline picks up from the year 1800 and concludes in 1977.
