This course begins with an introduction to the Norwegian political system and its institutions. A central issue vis-a-vis North Norway is management and protection of the region's rich natural resources.
With this as the point of departure, the course proceeds to focus on how institutions manage and conserve natural resources and the environment. These efforts are examined in the context of relevant international treaties and how international environmental policy cooperation has developed at a regional level. Empirical material is studied in the theoretical perspective afforded by the political-science sub-discipline of international politics.
