New DIIS report on Nordic views of great power politics in the Arctic

Press release from the Danish Institute for International Studies

The Arctic is increasingly becoming a region marked by great power competition between the US, Russia and China.This has caused trouble for the Nordic countries in the Arctic, who has had to handle and defuse both potential tensions with both Russia and China, and at the same manage relations with the US – their great power protector – whose new approach to the Artic now openly focuses on Russian and China as strategic competitors in the Arctic.Building on interviews, official documents and the existing literature, this report looks into the experiences from Finland, Norway and Iceland in dealing with this dilemma with the aim of identifying points for consideration by Denmark.
