This paper descripes how the Arctic Council deal with various issues in the arctic region, and how they have dealt with the recent interest in the region, following survey results suggesting there might be large deposits of natural gas, oil and minerals. The goal of the research is to look into how they deal with the rising issues in the arctic and if they live up to the Ottawa delcaration that was the birth of the AC. Our findings showed radically different results depending on the Theoritical approach you used to research it, which helps showing that the Arctic Councils effectiveness is dependent on your view, as they do fullfil the original requirements and have continued to add onto that effort, they also continue to be a force to be reckoned with in regards to enviromental governance.
