Regulating shipping in Russian Arctic Waters: Between international law, national interests and geopolitics [SIRAW]

The project investigates the status and trends on the development and implementation of the Russian Arctic shipping regulations – the theme of the opening international seminar on in Tromsø in May 2019, with some of the questions revisited at the outreach seminar “Shipping i Arktis: Hva vil Russland?” in Oslo in October 2019. These activities lay the ground for developing a special issue of The Polar Journal, Volume 10, Issue 2 (2020), with nine articles written by academics from Norway, Russia, Canada, and China.
