Norwegian Polar Politics 1870-2014

The main objective of this research project is to develop a synthesis of Norwegian polar political thinking and practice from the late 19th century up until today. The results of the project will be published as a book in both Norwegian and English editions.

FNI's main responsibility in the project will be the most recent part of the period covered, from the end of the Cold War.
