In recent years the notions of both Poles – North and South – have become more and more frequent. Yet while Antarctica is still an unexplored and relatively stable region, the same cannot be said about the Arctic. The Arctic is a captivating issue – global warming, the opening of sea routes and passages, military concerns, economic advantages, predictions of vast mineral deposits, territorial disputes, usage of fisheries, lives of indigenous populations – all that contributes to this hot topic. More and more countries and even specific regions develop and publish their Arctic strategies. How can researchers possibly access such a vast ocean of information? For me, the best way seems to be the country-based approach and comparative analysis of what is each state’s policy towards the Arctic region. The ‘New North’ awaits – it is up to us to uncover it. The sustainable future of the Arctic is on everybody’s mind yet is hard to achieve.
