Arctic Challenge
for Sustainability ll

Designing Resilient International Legal Regimes for a Sustainable Arctic and the Contribution of Japan

This research program aims to create a blueprint for resilient international regimes to support the sustainability of the transforming Arctic region, based on evidence-based research on international law and policy related to the Arctic. Maintaining and strengthening the rule of law in the Arctic region is a pillar of Japan’s Arctic policy. Director Shibata is leading a team of about 15 Japanese lawyers to implement this research program with annual budget of about 20,000,000JPY for five years until March 2025.

This page is the list of research results from the project members as well as its collaborators*, in a chronological order.
