The High North: Between Geography and Politics

The topic is very current, if not pressing and imperative, and far from simple as it is multi-faceted and its complexity compounded by multiple and hard to predict determinants
It concerns the most important and most recent problems of the High North, including the Arctic, the European countries of the North, and organizational forms of cooperation in the region
The thematic cohesion is attained through the contemporary approach to research findings and the potential transformations

About this book

The High North: Between Geography and Politics deals with the transformation of the Arctic from an isolated or a distant region to a member of the global community, vulnerable to global changes, and an area frequently in the very center of the world's attention. Increased global interest is a potential source of tensions between the need for exploration or exploitation, and the requirements of protection. This context calls for new data, knowledge and information vital for a better understanding of interactions between different systems, as well as developing awareness about the current and potential changes in the future. The objective of The High North: Between Geography and Politics is to help develop a strategy of adaptation to climate change based on the knowledge and experience of the extremely effective mechanisms which for centuries made survival possible in this region.
