Guide to Arctic Policy and Assessments

Title (max 80 characters)The EU and the Arctic Region: Multilateral Governance
Blurb (max 320 characters)Based on the European Commission's communication on the European Union and Arctic Region. Policy objectives include working to uphold the further development of a cooperative Arctic governance system based on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

The full implementation of already existing obligations, rather than proposing new legal instruments should be advocated; however this should not preclude work on further developing some of the frameworks.
