Governing access rights to harvesting marine living resources: the case of the Svalbard Archipelago

Category
Part of a book/report
Abstract
This chapter discusses practice of another important Arctic coastal State: Norway. The authors choose Svalbard as a case study. The chapter examines existing conflicts between Arctic nations with respect to the Archipelago of Svalbard, suggesting that these conflicts are driven by a race for resources, overlapping jurisdictional claims, uncertain fishing rights, and a lack of multi-regional agreements. The chapter also investigates if and how Norway has a proactive role in institutionalizing and regulating management claims over Svalbard versus what the international acceptance of practice is.
