The Arctic is becoming the focus of worldwide interest due to climate change and the utilisation of the region’s natural resources. It has seen the emergence of new industries, environmental pressures and geopolitical tensions. At the same time, academic and public discourse and the media are facing the challenge of finding adequate ways to discuss the developments in the region.
