Strategy Papers on the Arctic or High North: A comparative study and analysis
Source: Institute of International Affairs, University of Iceland
From the Preface:
The future challenges expected in the environmental, economic, security and other spheres as the Arctic ice melts have become a hot topic in governmental, as well as academic and media, circles. In the last decade, each of the eight countries that founded the Arctic Council – Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, the Russian Federation, Sweden and the USA – has published at least one major policy document on the topic; and the European Union as an institution has followed suit. Many of these documents describe themselves as ‘strategies’, making them also a sub-set of any comprehensive national security strategy that exists. The individual documents reveal a lot about national concerns and priorities, both international and domestic, and about national assumptions and preferences regarding the future governance framework for addressing Arctic challenges.
