The Role of Non-Arctic States / Actors in the Arctic Legal Order-Making

Event Dates
2017-12-07 - 2017-12-09
Kobe University, Japan

The Polar Cooperation Research Centre (PCRC) is proud to announce its third international symposium. The PCRC’s distinct research approach to the Arctic is aimed at establishing and strengthening the international legal and institutional framework so as to bring stability and foreseeability in the future of the Arctic. Increasingly, the challenges faced in the Arctic can no longer be addressed or tackled only within the Arctic both geographically and functionally. This symposium will critically examine the positive contribution that the non-Arctic States/actors can bring to such Arctic legal order-making, as well as challenges faced by them.

PCRC symposia endeavor to be thought-provoking and discussion-oriented, with each session comprising of an in-depth examination by an expert followed by critical discussion with the discussants and the participants. We do not have parallel sessions so that all participants can engage in all sessions.

This symposium is by invitation only. If you wish to attend the symposium, please make a registration as soon as possible. Please note that due to the limited seating availability, we may not accommodate all the requests.
