The Arctic in Global Affairs examines the forces that are transforming the Arctic region and related issues of governance, resource development, trade, environmental policies, and international cooperation. Globalization and climate change are having a great impact on the physical and political properties the region. From changes at the local community level to possible new trade routes, the political constitution of the Arctic as a region in global politics is undergoing a major shift. Since the Arctic is largely considered as terra nullius, much of the debates center on who owns the Arctic and who should decide. It is not yet clear whether it will become a region of peace and cooperation or one of increased competition and conflict. The Arctic in Global Affairs is a comprehensive text that will appeal to anyone researching Arctic politics and international politics. It provides a unique case study to help understand the nature of global change and promote new concepts in international relations theory.
