In a way unrivalled since the Cold War, the Arctic has become one of the leading issues on the international foreign policy agenda.

Drawing on the perspectives of geo-politics and international law and applying a contextualizing approach as befits a newly emergent, globalized Arctic, leading international scientists offer fresh insights and perspectives on the most pressing issues under the headings of political ascendancy, climate and environmental issues, resources and energy, and the response and policies of affected countries.
