Overview Kaldfront

Svalbard is the Achilles heel of Norwegian foreign policies. There have been many conflicts with the Soviet Union and later with Russia, and they have been serious. At a time when international interest in the Northernmost part of our planet is greater than ever before, the Russian Prime Minister has declared that the Cold War is back.

Kaldfront takes the reader on an exciting journey through Svalbard's political history and describes the new challenges, in the context of the great opportunities in the Arctic and the tense situation between Russia and the West.
