Conclusion: The Search for a New Security Paradigm Begins in the Arctic

Heather Exner-Pirot, Lassi Heininen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific


This chapter briefly summarizes the objectives of this book, and asks whether a new security paradigm—one that adequately accounts for the threats arising from environmental and climate changes—is on the horizon. We conclude that such a paradigm is not yet available. We remain entrenched in a state-led, international structure that is poorly adapted to address the security implications of climate change, as demonstrated in the Arctic region.
