The publication examines the corpus of status quo environmental legal regime, geographical issues and redundant “stakeholder claims” that persist in the Arctic. Consideration is given to different notions, legal theories, and stakeholders, and the authors critically examine the Arctic national legislation. A unique aspect of the book is the Corporate Social Responsibility analysis pertaining to the Arctic. Through logic and reasoning, the authors propose a detailed and intricate new Arctic legal regime that is hierarchy based.
