The Arctic Council is the leading intergovernmental forum promoting cooperation, coordination and interaction among the Arctic states, Arctic indigenous communities and other Arctic inhabitants on common Arctic issues. The Arctic Council is a unique international forum both historically and globally. It is the first international institution formed in dialogue with indigenous peoples and the first where government and indigenous organizations work on almost equal par to provide coordination for international decision-making and activities in and concerning the circumpolar world.
