Norway’s Arctic Policy: Geopolitics, Security and Identity in the High North

About the eBook

Offering a concise and coherent look at geopolitics and security in the Arctic, this book analyses how the High North has become central to the security interaction between NATO and Russia, and between China and the United States.

Featuring contributions from top scholars in the field, the book highlights the key issues relating to the formation of Norwegian foreign and security policy in the North. Chapters examine security issues surrounding Svalbard, and how the Arctic has become integral to Norwegian security, regional development, and identity politics. Overall, this book presents a comprehensive examination of Norway’s approach to foreign policy and security issues in an area of immense strategic and ecological responsibility.

With an introductory statement from the former Foreign Minister of Norway, this book will be essential reading for academics and students of European politics, human geography, international relations, Nordic studies, and political geography and geopolitics. It will also be beneficial for government officials and security personnel working on Arctic issues, and in Nordic countries and Northern Europe.
