Testing the Northern Flank. The UK, Norway and Exercise Cold Response,
RUSI JOURNAL August/September 2012 Vol. 157 No. 4 pp. 72–78


Britain’s participation in the March 2012 Exercise Cold Response was a powerful indication of the country’s strategic interest in the Arctic. Far from being a mere throwback to the Cold War, it signals the UK’s intention to re-affirm its presence and capability in northern Europe as the global geostrategic significance of the Arctic grows. Regardless of whether the coalition government does release an Arctic strategy in 2013, Nordic neighbours, especially Norway, welcome this British commitment to the ‘High North’.

Schatzkammer Arktis. Deutschlands Interessen an Rohstoffen aus dem Hohen Norden, (Treasures of the Arctic. Gemany’s interests in resources from the High North). Internationale Politik, No 4, Juli/August 2012 

Die Arktis ist eine der rohstoffreichsten Regionen der Erde. Ihre Bodenschätze können dazu beitragen, den Bedarf der deutschen Industrie zu befriedigen. Ohne den Import energetischer und metallischer Rohstoffe aus der Region nördlich des Polarkreises, vor allem der Seltenen Erden, wird die deutsche Industrie künftig nicht wettbewerbsfähig sein.

Helga Haftendorn:
Der Traum vom Ressourcenreichtum der Arktis (Dreams About the Arctic Region’s Assets). Zeitschrift für Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik, No 2, 2012 

This paper analyses the assumed material assets of the Polar region. Climate change has made the A rctic more accessible and allows for the exploitation and utilization of its resources that are in high demand from the industries in the developed countries. Long Polar nights, severe cold and heavy storms, and the absence of efficient logistics, however, make the use of these resources cumbersome. A very sensitive ecology further demands attention. In which way can Germany and the other Western countries nevertheless profit from the resources in the Arctic Region?

Debates over the Role of the Arctic Council, Ocean Development & International Law, Volume 43, Issue 2, 2012.

This article examines the role(s) that the member governments want the Arctic Council to have in Arctic Ocean affairs. The article identifies and examines three determining debates over the role and future of the Arctic Council: The first preceded the Arctic Council's creation in 1996, the second occurred during and as a result of the Ilulissat meeting in 2008, and the third followed the political shift in the United States in 2009.

Vijay Sakhuja:
Asia Looks North - Towards the Arctic, Indian Foreign Affairs Journal, Vol 7 2012. 

Abstract: The ongoing climate induced changes in the Arctic region have attracted the attention of several Asian countries. There is a genuine interest among these countries to study the systematic changes in the polar ice, climate and weather, geological and geophysical research and other science related subjects. Several Asian countries have set up their research stations in the region. The Asian countries also see several economic opportunities to exploit newfound living and non-living resources for their economic development.

At another level, Asian countries are keen to take advantage of melting of the Arctic ice by exploring new shipping routes to facilitate movement of goods and energy resources between Europe and Asia. There have been mixed reactions from the Arctic claimant states about Asian interests in the Arctic and the dominant view is that Asian countries would be welcome if they play a constructive role in the evolving politico-economic-strategic dynamics in the Arctic.
