Since the end of the Cold War, the Arctic and its peoples have experienced new challenges to its security. The very nature of arctic security has undergone profound transformations in both meaning and impacts. The challenge to those who live in the north, policy-makers and researchers is that there is a need to not only consider new threats to the areas security, but it is also necessary to incorporate new thinking as to what constitutes security in the Arctic. Whose security is being threatened and what can be done to protect this security? These are challenging questions that do not provide easy answers.
