520    Russia holds more Arctic territory than any other state, 
       yet unlike other Arctic states it does not have a unified 
       strategy identifying economic and political aims for the 
       North. Russia's policies on the North are dispersed across
       a variety of fields from domestic migration politics to 
       oil and gas development. This volume engages the disparate
       elements of Russian northern policy and illustrates how 
       the centralized, relatively economically strong and 
       politically assertive Russia of today defines and 
       addresses northern spaces, opportunities, and challenges. 
       As energy markets continue looking northward and climate 
       change renders the Arctic increasingly accessible, the 
       geopolitical interests of Arctic states will be brought 
       more frequently to the forefront. These circumstances will
       make the disputed borders and overlapping sovereignty 
       claims of the North an important topic in international 
       politics. Given its geographic size and political 
       influence, Russia is and will continue to be a key 
       regional and global actor in the international politics of
       the North
