The Arctic is melting and scientists are uncertain about how this will affect ecosystems. At the same time, the Arctic is the object of heated political discussion. Who shall extract the oil and gas when the ice disappears? How are marine delimitation lines established? Who will control the new sea routes that are opening up? Who actually owns the Arctic? This volume brings together some of the most relevant journal articles on international relations in the Arctic published since the end of the Cold War. The articles discuss circumpolar and regional Arctic governance, including the claim that a 'scramble for the Arctic' is underway.
