This timely book provides a cutting-edge assessment of how the dynamic ocean regions at the highest latitudes on earth are being managed in an era of unprecedented environmental change. The Arctic and Southern oceans are experiencing transformative environmental change as a result of climate change and ocean acidification. As areas of unparalleled environmental, cultural and scientific value, they are crucibles for testing how integrated, eco-systemic governance frameworks can be developed to meet and address volatile environmental, political and economic challenges. Drawing especially on Australian and Canadian experiences in polar oceans management through multilateral global and regional institutions, the book identifies policy options for improving the governance of the Arctic and Southern Oceans. In offering a pioneering 'bipolar' assessment of environmental management at both Polar Regions, this important book will be an essential resource for policymakers, scholars and students actively engaged in discussion and debate on the future of polar oceans governance in the Anthropocene.
