Abstract

A number of governance systems aim to promote the environmental protection and well-being of residents of the circumpolar North. The creation of these governance systems has, however, presented several challenges in international law from the viewpoint of the conceptual discourse. Although these governance systems have functioned within the international community for a considerable period of time, none of them constitutes a formal international organization. This article focuses on their legal positions, and makes suggestions for their improved efficiency and performance, possibly by enhancing cooperation between the governance systems.
