It is with pleasure that I report on the publication of a co-edited collection of essays called The Handbook on the Politics of Antarctica. My coeditors were Dr Alan Hemmings from University of Canterbury (New Zealand) and Dr Peder Roberts from KTH University in Stockholm.
Over 37 chapters we range widely from considering the contested politics of resource management to the contribution that the arts and humanities can make to the way in which we imagine and practice ‘politics’ in Antarctica and beyond.
The collection will complement nicely the teaching that I do on the MSc. Geopolitics and Security, which includes a specialist option on the geopolitics and governance of the polar regions.
