Where is the "High North"?
The concept of the High North is widely open to interpretation. Its geographical delimination varies from one country to the other and according to the agenda of the user.
The term "High North" as used in this programme is confined to the European Arctic and is guided by practioners' usage rather than by theoretical considerations. It includes those parts of the Nordic countries and Russia that participate in the Barents Euro-Arctic Region, the Norwegian Sea, the Barents Sea, and the southern parts of the Polar Sea. The totality of the areas north of the polar circle will be referred to as the "Arctic".
