About this item

Specialists in international relations in the Arctic trace the emergence of a scramble for the region, bringing perspectives from Europe, North America, and Australia and, while emphasizing international relations, also draw from such fields as geography and anthropology. The four dimensions they cover are geopolitics and strategic resources, Law of the Sea, Arctic institutions and specific fields of cooperation, and national approaches to the Arctic. Among the topics are oil-spill response in the Russian Arctic, maritime limits and boundaries in the Arctic Ocean: agreements and disputes, from Ilulissat to Kiruna: managing the Arctic Council and the contemporary geopolitics of the Arctic, the role of discourse analysis in understanding spatial systems, and the US embrace of collaborative security for the Arctic.
