Abstract

The opening up of the Northern Sea Route raises the question of whether Arctic navigation will become a viable proposition and the implications of such an eventuality. The opening up of the route will necessitate the Arctic littoral states to put in greater efforts to manage and govern these developments and, in particular, enhance their surveillance, enforcement and search and rescue capabilities to protect and preserve the remote, environmentally fragile but increasingly used Arctic marine spaces involved.
