North America's Arctic Borders
Excerpt

“In some ways it is clear that Northern borders in Canada are exceptional. There are issues of climate change and environmental disruptions, geopolitics, international law, colonial legacies, economic development and governance that are unique. All of these influence the way in which borders are both imagined and managed.”

“Today, the tide has turned in terms of the growing political clout of Indigenous organizations. In the North American North, as elsewhere in the circumpolar region, many Indigenous peoples have become actors on a larger stage, and are being remapped onto larger national and international organizations levels of consultation, discussion and action.”

“Canadian and American security agencies seek greater levels of transnational cooperation in the North, precisely because of the cross-border nature of 21st century security threats triggered by large existential threats such as environmental instability related to climate change (Kee 2019, Kee et al. 2019). Climate change, melting ice, and increased shipping and maritime activities have thus contributed to speculation about future tensions and territorial conflict in the North, as well as highlighted the need for assurances of cooperation.”
