Robert Murray, Vice President of Research at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, was on Alberta Primetime and interviewed about International Relations and the Arctic, a book he coedited with Anita Dey Nuttall, the associate director of the Canadian Circumpolar Institute at the University of Alberta. As the interviewer noted, “Eight countries have claims but there hasn’t been a comprehensive academic study of the changing geopolitics of the circumpolar North—until now” before featuring the book. Hailed as a one of kind with contributions from major heavyweights across continents and areas of expertise, this unprecedented study is an essential resource for researchers as international interest in the Arctic heats up. Watch the interview to hear how Dr. Murray explain the dynamic nature of the geopolitics of the Arctic region.
From the book: “As states are able to access the Arctic more freely and widely, interest in the region will undoubtedly continue to grow. The circumpolar North, with all its opportunities and challenges, represents one of the final frontiers on the planet. There remains plenty of mystery surrounding just how high the levels of natural resources are and how greater shipping access will alter the geopolitical landscape. If the events of the last twenty years are any indication, the Arctic will continue to be at the forefront of international political discussion and debate and will play a pivotal role in geostrategic calculations of states and institutions well into the future.” (pg. 628)
