The Future of the Arctic
A Report on the Literature

Christoph Humrich

Deutsche Fassung


The Arctic is attracting a great amount of attention from the publishing world. This has to do with the consequences of climate change, the suspected riches, and the reverberations of Russia’s underwater journey to the seabed at the North Pole. There is still a lack of basic analytical information needed to organise the various developments. There are also few innovative suggestions for a sustainable political, economic, social, and ecological development of the region.
