Abstract [en]

This paper examines how the outside world´s growing interest in the Arctic, which has emerged due to the opportunities implied by the Arctic‟s retreating sea ice, is affecting theArctic Ocean littoral states‟ relations with each other. It does so by utilizing the Copenhagen Schools‟ theory of securitization in a case study of Canadian and RussianArctic discourse between the years 2007 and 2012. The main findings are that bothRussia and Canada have securitized the Arctic and designated non-Arctic actors as anexistential threat. Through that process their willingness to cooperate with each other hasincreased.
