The chapter will draw a holistic picture of Arctic geopolitics and international relations/IR in the (post) post-Cold War period. Its aim is to examine and analyze how the high geopolitical stability of the Arctic was achieved and been maintained, and why it seems to be resilient. The chapter will first briefly discuss the recent transformation of Arctic geopolitics from classical to critical. Second, it will identify, examine, and analyze common interests between the Arctic states, with an ultimate aim to transform from confrontation to cooperation. Third, it will discuss relevant features of Arctic geopolitics and security, which can be seen as prerequisites for high stability. Finally, it will conclude by asking if there are special features that could be new themes of global Arctic geopolitics, based on the common interests and prerequisites.
