For interested readers, the peer-reviewed journal Eurasian Geography and Economics has just published my article, “North by Northeast: Toward an Asian-Arctic Region.” The article consists of research I completed for the dissertation for my MPhil in Polar Studies at the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge. In the article, I analyze the recent activities of China, South Korea, and Japan in the Arctic while also placing them in a historical context. I also examine their polar activities as part of the wider thrust of the East Asian countries into the maritime domain – whether in the Arctic, Pacific, or even elsewhere.

For a quick overview of what’s covered in the article, the sections are as follows:ege

  • The Arctic’s historical ties to global markets
  • Northern gateways and pivots to Asia
  • Bilateral ties between Asian and Arctic countries
