Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on one of the key legal issues in the Arctic Ocean, the delineation of the continental shelf outside the 200-nautical mile limit and the approach by the Kingdom of Denmark to the challenges in this area. It describes the constitutional framework for the cooperation between Denmark and Greenland within the Kingdom of Denmark in regard to the Arctic as a prerequisite for understanding the Danish/Greenlandic interests in the Arctic. The key interests of both Denmark/Greenland and of other actors in the region are presented together with some more general comments of the choice of and chosen strategies for addressing the challenges of the region. Finally the established processes in the Kingdom of Denmark regarding the work on submissions on the continental shelf are described, drawing on lessons learned from the first partial submission done.
