The aim of this module is twofold: first to give an overview and basic information on geopolitics, security, international relations - particularly international cooperation - and the recent key changes as they pertain to the circumpolar North; and second, interrelations between the circumpolar North and international society, and how the region is seen in world politics. The module describes the main categories of international actors (of the international system), and those of the circumpolar North, with their multi-functional interests at the early-21st century. The module also briefly presents how geopolitics has been present and is implemented in the circumpolar North. Next, the module presents the main paradigms and discourses on security and security studies, and how they are presented and implemented in the circumpolar North. The module also describes both the main features of the Cold War geopolitics and international politics, and the main themes, or trends, of circumpolar geopolitics and international relations, particularly different categories and levels of international cooperation in the post-Cold War period. Similarly, the module describes and discusses the role of the circumpolar North and the possibilities to influence world politics and international society. Finally, the module describes and analyzes the recent multi-functional changes of circumpolar geopolitics, and ecognizes what might be interpreted to be key indicators of the changing geopolitics of the early-21st century’s North.
