The Arctic region as a zone of collaboration and a zone of competition

About the Project

            The project is focused on the research direction in the field of the Arctic, which is being implemented for the first time in the 2021/2022 academic year by the School of International Regional Studies of the Faculty of World Economy and International AffairsNational Research University Higher School of Economics (Russian Federation) in cooperation with the University of Oslo (Norway), the University of Akureyri (Iceland), Novosibirsk State University (Russia) and the Arctic Economic Council (Norway).

            The Arctic is a special strategic and geopolitical macro-region that affects the interests of many countries and retains its constant relevance for many years. In turn, the importance of the Northern Sea Route continues to grow every day, and in the near future it might be able to compete with such serious international transport corridors as the Suez Canal and the Panama Canal.  At the same time, to date, many issues related to the effective management of the resources of this region, issues of environmental safety of this region, issues of the international legal regime of both the Arctic itself and the Northern Sea Route are still largely and debatable.

            The project is focused on the research direction. This format allows students not only gain experience in writing scientific texts, but also helps to establish contacts with international colleagues. Project participants can work either individually or in collaboration with each other.

            Since the project is not only international, but also interdisciplinary, participants can choose any topic related to legal, environmental, economic, political and other aspects of the functioning of the Arctic region for their scientific research.

            The purpose of this project is to form students ' knowledge and develop research skills in the field of the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route: the study of political, economic, environmental, legal and other issues related to this region, its history and place on the geopolitical map of the world and in the system of international relations.

            Since this project is open for a year, and one of the goals is to establish and develop scientific cooperation in the Arctic, we leave open the possibility of expanding the list of partner universities that will join it during this period of time.

             Within the framework of the project, participants will prepare a literature review on the proposed issues; will have the opportunity to listen to lectures by invited speakers-specialists in the field of the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route; will make a presentation on selected research areas and prepare scientific publications.

            The project will result in two international round tables where the project participants will present the results of their research to a group of scientists and experts from Russia, Norway, Iceland and other countries

            The project will be implemented in Russian and English language.
