Emerging from the Frost: Security in the 21st century
MetadataShow full item record
On 25–26 September 2007 the Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies hosted an international conference on the security politics of the Arctic region. This issue of Oslo Files contains a collection of contributions from the conference. The anthology comes in four parts. After a brief introduction, the scene is set with a discussion of the various aspects of the geopolitical developments in the High North after the Cold War. Part two follows with three national perspectives on developments in the Arctic: the Norwegian, the Icelandic and that of the United States. The third and most extensive part presents research and practice within the areas of jurisdiction, transport, resources and security in the High North. Finally, General Sverre Diesen, the Norwegian Chief of Defence and initiator of the conference, presents his perspectives on military implications for the Arctic – now emerging from the frost.
