Given the magnitude and potential impacts of the realization of risks related to carrying out activities in the Arctic, new business opportunities arising as a result of the milder climate raise questions of responsibility and liability.

This book analyses ideas of responsibility and liability connected with the exploitation of natural resources, marine transport and other activities in the Arctic. Applying a combined private and public law perspective on these issues, it considers both the business and societal interests related to Arctic development using Greenland as an example.

Focusing both on problems that are specific to Greenland and wider issues that affect all Arctic states, it offers in depth analyses of international law directly relevant to all Arctic states
