Ongoing changes in the Arctic generate an increase of human activities (e.g., shipping and exploitation of natural resources), ones which will require legal and other regulation if they are to be safe and sustainable. This book compiles 18 short contributions that will provide into how the law and policy function in the Arctic. Many of the contributions identify legal issues that will shape the future of the Arctic, offering perspectives that would benefit the legal community at large.
