History of Norwegian Polar Politics
The research project ”Norsk polarpolitikk 1870–2014” explores Norwegian polar politics in both theory and practice from the end of the 19th century to 2014. The project will provide a comprehensive and methodologically sophisticalted view of the topic area, resulting in a book written collectively by the project members. Although Norway remains the central focus, a key goal is to locate Norwegian politics within the broader international context, not least given the importance of the Arctic to international affairs in the present.
