Semester Herbstsemester 2022

Inhalt The goal of the class is to get to know the Arctic from a political science perspective and
to discuss some of the policy challenges the region is facing. The High North may seem
distant and inaccessible to us in Switzerland, but in a number of ways, it »has emerged
as the front lines of the global future« (Coates/Holroyd 2020: 3): What happens in the
Arctic matters to the planet as a whole – most prominently, the impacts of climate change
on the Arctic sea and land ice sheets feature in (mass media) reports also in Switzerland.
Related to climate change are topics such as access to suspected natural resources such
as oil and gas or shipping routes along the arctic shores that have the potential to alter
the political and economic landscapes not only of Arctic countries. For a long time,
military presence has also left its mark on the Arctic wilderness. In most recent events,
governments are also increasingly pressured to come to terms with their colonial pasts –
especially Canada and Denmark. In short: »The Arctic may be politically hot, but it is also
increasingly messy in ecological, economic, social and cultural terms.« (Coates/Holroyd
2020: 4).
After learning about current policy challenges in the Arctic, we will take a look at the
institutional framework with which these challenges are to be tackled. This may include
organisations such as the Inuit Circumpolar Council, Arctic Council, Barents Euro-Arctic
Council or the Northern Dimension policy platform. We discuss the different
organisations and their work. Additionally, we investigate why e.g. Singapore and
Belgium have declared themselves Arctic actors. Especially the Swiss government’s
position on Arctic issues and its strategy e.g. as observing member in the Arctic Council
let us zoom back on a national level and discuss consequences for Switzerland.
