The Arctic has become a global arena. This development can only be comprehensively understood in a trans-disciplinary setting encompassing ecological, cultural, economic, geopolitical, security, and societal contexts. This book offers thorough explanations of Arctic developments and challenges. Global warming is in large part the driving force behind the transformation of the Arctic by making access possible to the areas previously reserved for ice breakers. An all-year ice-free Arctic, a reality possible as soon as perhaps 2030, creates a new dynamic in the North with the shortest sea route from Asia to Europe. Consequently, the Northern Sea Route (NSR) promises faster and greener shipping. Russia with foreign investments, especially from China, is financing the infrastructure needed to support future shipping from the factories of Asia to Europe. The heating of the Arctic is however also having negative impacts. The Arctic is home to a fragile eco-system that is already showing signs of deteriorating. The Arctic has seen unprecedented wildfires which in turn will negatively impact climate change. Climate change is furthermore warming the Arctic ocean which in will impact fisheries. Couple this with other pressures such as acidification and overfishing, and the outlook is bleak. Additionally, the security situation in the Arctic is worsening. After the 2014 Ukraine crisis, sanctions were imposed by the West on the Russian Federation. This has driven the security situation towards the divisions of the Cold War. The reemergence of these postures is threatening the Barents Cooperation and other initiatives for peace in the circumpolar North. This book offers new insights and presents arguments for how to mitigate the challenges the Artic is facing today.
