China's Role in the Arctic: Observing and Being Observed (Hardback)

£120.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This book explores the growing interests of China in the Arctic and examines the nature of its interests and motivations in maintaining its involvement and presence in the region.





The new geopolitical landscape of the Arctic today is a significant departure from the great power politics that existed in the region during the Cold War era. Apart from traditional Arctic states, more and more international organizations and non-Arctic states are showing an increased interest in this region, not least China. Many have attempted to interpret China's intention in moving to the high north and this book aims to add to the existing literature from three approaches: China's participation in the international institutions, China's relationships with the Arctic stakeholders, and China's sectoral engagement in the Arctic. In taking a three-dimensional approach to the analysis, the author builds a comprehensive picture of China's interests and activities in the Arctic, not only from the perspective of China, but also from the viewpoint of other Arctic States (Russia, Canada, the U.S., Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland).





One of the first books in English to cover the subject since the release of China's Arctic Policy White Paper in January 2018, this analysis will be of interest to academics, students of Arctic studies, maritime law and international law, as well as policy-makers in Arctic and non-Arctic states.

Nong Hong heads the Institute for China-America Studies (ICAS), an independent, non-profit academic institution based in Washington D.C. She also holds a joint position of research fellow with China Institute, University of Alberta (CIUA), National Institute for South China Sea Studies (NISCSS).
