“Russian Arctic Strategy: East-West Conflict or Cooperation?”
In August 2007 a titanium Russian flag was firmly planted on the seabed of the Arctic Ocean. As discovered global energy resources dwindle in the face of increasing global demand, fuelled in particular by the rise of China, the Arctic has rapidly become the focus of intense geopolitical interest. Certainly, Russia’s assertive Arctic stance has intensified international focus upon the region as it emerges as a potential flashpoint for conflict. This research examines the key drivers of Russian Arctic strategy under Vladimir Putin and assesses the implications of a looming Arctic carve up for international energy security.
