In Norway

The Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies (IFS), specialises in the fields of geopolitics, as well as Norwegian and international security, including Russian, American and High North security. IFS has prioritised the northern region in its research activities, with more than ten scholars holding High North research competence. In the autumn of 2007, the institute was responsible for organising two international conferences on the High North: one pertaining to Cold War issues, the second dealing with current and future challenges in the High North.

The Department of Political Science of the University of Oslo (UiO) is the leading academic institution in Norway concerning geopolitics, international organisations and regimes, and energy and environmental issues. The prominent professors taking part in the programme include Dag Harald Claes, Arild Underdal and Øyvind Østerud.

The Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI) is an independent foundation engaging in social science research on international energy, resource and environmental policy, including international law. It is a leading institute internationally on regime effectiveness and institutional interplay, on Arctic politics related to marine resource management, climate and environment, energy development and law of the sea issues. It has also a major research agenda on Russian politics and interests in the High North.

The Departments of History and Political Science and the Faculty of Law of the University of Tromsø (UiT) represent one of the major academic research environments for international relations in the High North. Key research areas include international ocean law and governance, and the history of the Arctic. Alf Håkon Hoel, Tore Henriksen, Hallvard Tjelmeland, Torbjørn Pedersen and Per Christiansen will be the main contributors.
