Hi, I’m Katarina
a globetrotter, security and defence wonk, researcher and policy advisor & guerrilla diplomat facilitating Russia-West dialogue on arms control, Arctic security, and the climate-security nexus.
2020 - Present
My work at the ELN focuses on conventional arms control, Russia-NATO relations, Arctic security, and the climate-nuclear nexus. Besides, I coordinate and support the ELN’s Contact Group on Russia-West Relations.
My research focuses on Russian activities and ambitions in the Arctic, including the drivers behind Russia's military build-up in the region, and the upcoming Russian Chairmanship of the Arctic Council.
