This chapter uses the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its application to marine biodiversity to examine how states can work within and beyond the limitations of territorially based international law to better keep pace with changes in the Arctic. State actors have proven only partly capable of shifting from a boundary-based practice of sovereignty and territorial integrity to acknowledging and acting upon indigenous rights and environmental concerns in the marine Arctic. The chapter demonstrates how states can provide better practical solutions for the changing Arctic by weaving more tightly together norms and principles that are common to three strands of international law: (i) the international law of territory and boundaries; (ii) international environmental law; and (iii) international indigenous rights law.
