The Third International TRAMEREN conference seeks to explore environmental governance in the Arctic by examining institutions, actors and interactions in emerging issues in Arctic ocean governance, such as conservation of marine living resources, the use of the marine Arctic for extractive industries, climate change impacts, and maritime transport issues.

Building on the 2016 I TRAMEREN Conference on Maritime Transport and Climate Change and the 2018 II International TRAMEREN Conference on Frontiers in Ocean Environmental Governance, the III TRAMEREN Conference aims to explore pressing environmental and climate-related issues in the Arctic.

Among others, the conference aims to address the following questions:

  • What are the different institutional approaches to Arctic environmental governance at the international, regional and national level? How do they interact?
  • What is the role of non-state actors and indigenous communities in Arctic environmental and climate change governance?
  • What efforts can foster the coordination of the conservation and sustainable use of living and non-living resources in the Arctic?
  • How does climate change impact governance challenges, and what has been done to support adaptation/mitigation?
