D5: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Changing Arctic Realities – between Cooperation and Conflicting Interests (Workshop)

Dr. Nadja Douglas and Dr. Sabine von Löwis (ZOiS)

Workshop description

The Arctic is a region “off the radar”, but increasingly in the spotlight because of the climate crisis and the war in Ukraine. Due to the melting of Arctic sea ice, new sea routes gain in importance and new geopolitical actors claim interests, while the Arctic Council is temporary suspended.

In the context of this workshop, we seek an interdisciplinary approach to the region with the goal to explore the diverse possibilities of co-operation, but also to point out to the many existent and looming conflicts of interest. In the focus are security, ecological and anthropological aspects.
