This chapter takes up the question of what it would mean for the Arctic if both the problems and the solutions to managing environmental protection, resource extraction, and governance in a rapidly changing changing Arctic were analyzed through a human rights lens. As such, it offers human rights norms as an ordering principle for Arctic governance-a way to resolve issues of legal fragmentation, and to bridge the critical policy-setting gaps in participation and implementation.
