Environmental impact assessment in the Arctic presents a probing
examination of the norms of international law that apply to the
planning stage of large-scale activities such as hydrocarbon
exploitation, mineral extraction and forestry. While the norms that
regulate these activities belong mainly to international
environmental law, also human rights law, in particular the law
relating to indigenous peoples is important. The book will examine
the sovereignty situation in the region and the establishment and
functioning of the Arctic Council, a high-level platform between
the eight Arctic States (the United States, the Russian Federation,
Canada and the five Nordic States) and the region's indigenous
peoples. Moreover, a detailed look at the evolving regime of the
Espoo Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a
Transboundary Context is taken.
