International Relations and the Arctic: Understanding Policy and Governance

by Robert W. Murray and Anita Dey Nuttall


"This is a fantastic and elaborate collection ... this book is right on time. ... The good news about the present volume is that it does not simply treat the region as just another case of the application and replication of paradigmatic international relation (IR) theories. Rather, the book shall "throw light on how the Arctic as an area of study contributes to the IR discipline.' The contributors have done a great job doing so and their efforts will be of great interest to both the Arctic studies community and IR scholars." - Polar Record

“This is definitely a timely contribution to the literature and field of international relations. It introduces IR theory to the study of ‘Arctic change’ while focusing on behaviours and agendas of state and non-state actors in and around the circumpolar world. At a time when the Arctic Council embarks in its second cycle of chairmanships and opens up its circle of observers to Asian states and other actors, Murray and Dey Nuttall bring together world-class authors who offer a genuine and sometimes provocative look at how security and political environments are evolving throughout the Arctic.” – Joël Plouffe, CIRRICQ, École nationale d’administration publique; and managing editor of the Arctic Yearbook; and CDFAI Fellow
