More than 50 years after the Antarctic Treaty was conceived and signed, the Antarctic Treaty System is facing increasing external pressures that challenge the way the Antarctic is being governed. Most of these pressures reflect mounting global concerns surrounding resource security at a time characterized by a relentlessly growing world population and diminishing natural resources. In recent times, the Antarctic Treaty System has seemed to suffer from an institutional stasis, with no significant agreements added to the Antarctic Treaty since 1991 and legacy problems such as Antarctica’s unresolved sovereignty adversely impacting decision-making processes. Contemporary challenges linked to resource security and the contentious sovereignty situation are now testing the stability, success, and longevity of the Antarctic Treaty System.
