Introduction: Understanding historical contingencies into the future: cases from northern Europe
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Geography and Economic History.
2019 (English)In: The Politics of Arctic Resources: Change and Continuity in the ’Old North’ of Northern Europe / [ed] Keskitalo, E. C. H., London: Routledge, 2019, p. 1-17Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book focuses on specific sectors or areas of policy, looks at forest policy and legal development, highlighting that forestry has been seen as a resource of import since the 12th century. It discusses changes in habitation or human geography, contrasting the simplified assumptions often applied to sparsely populated regions with in fact great variation, from large coastal cities down to the village level. The book illustrates largely similar motivations in the case of mining, drawing on examples from legislative development in Norway and Finland as well as Sweden. It also illustrates that mining infrastructure constitutes the basis for much other development, not least that of tourism. The book contrasts and compares the Nordic focus of the volume with a case focused on Russian policy assumptions regarding its northern areas and their change over time.
