Beskrivning av projektet
The ongoing transformation of great power politics – the rise of China and the decline of the United States – will alter the shape of normative foundations of international society, including the Arctic regional affairs in which the Chinese are increasingly involved. Based on an analysis of political statements, strategies and other official documents, media content and interview data, the project will examine how China is shaping the processes in which notions of responsibility are defined, allocated and operationalized in the Arctic. With this design, the project will shed light on the kind of normative transformation China will bring about in international society, and how it will perform its great power responsibility in different policy areas and sectors. This information will then aid policy-makers, civil society and business corporations in making better-informed decisions and planning their future activities not only in the Arctic, but in other regions of the world as well.
