Проект: Arctic and Antarctic in modern geopolitics

Geopolitics is about the politics of space which includes its various characteristic e.g. location, size, natural resources, trade routes (both land and sea), economy and of course environmental conditions.  In all classic theories of geopolitics, world has been divided into Heartland, Rimland and World Island and many areas have been identified and discussed as more important than others for various reasons. But, the Arctic has been totally ignored in all its geopolitical dimensions as we do not find any geopolitical mention of its size, location, trade route and resources etc. in any of these theories. Environmental debates are also relatively new intervention in the field of geopolitics, therefore, environment and its impact in different regions including that of Arctic is new in geopolitics modelling. But now, as the impact of climate change and global warming is becoming a reality and the environment geopolitics is increasingly making space the debate of mainstream geopolitics. Therefore, the Arctic being so vast, resourceful, and strategically located is bound to become a topic of geopolitical debate. In near future Arctic region may emerge as core area of geopolitical debates.
