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.
