Expert comment: In October 2009, the U.S. Navy (USN) released a new roadmap for its activities relating to the Arctic for the next five years. The document stipulates a number of initiatives and actions that are designed to increase the USN’s knowledge about the arctic and capability to operate in arctic conditions. The publication of this roadmap has led to speculations about a military build-up and the potential for conflict in this area. Does this signify the beginning of an arms race in the Arctic?

Expert commentOn September 8-10 the international Barents Rescue 2009 exercise was held. The exercise is intended to increase practical cooperation on search and rescue (SAR) and handling of acute pollution. The High North comprises vast areas that have a harsh climate and little infrastructure. Conducting rescue operations with scarce resources is challenging and demands multilateral cooperation. The biannual Barents Rescue exercise is a productive initiative. But are we sufficiently prepared to manage the increased activity in the High North?
