In August 2007, Russian parliamentary deputy and Arctic explorer Artur Chilingarov placed a Russian flag close to the North Pole, declaring that “the Arctic is ours and we should manifest our presence.” Other Arctic states, such as Canada and Denmark, soon followed suit by announcing they would explore extending their States’ sovereignty. In the light of these developments and increased mobility and economic potential within the Arctic resulting from global warming, fears of a scramble for the Arctic with escalating territorial disputes grew not only in the media but also in sections of academia.
