International Political Order of the Arctic: A Theoretical Approach
Arktik Bölge’de Uluslararası Siyasi Düzen: Teorik Bir Yaklaşım

Hasan Fatih SEVAL [1]


In recent years, as the effects of global warming have become more apparent, the Arctic has begun to come into prominence not only on climatic issues but also on political issues. With the melting of glacial masses, access to the area was facilitated; the rich natural resource potential and the possibility of using new trade routes have transformed the region into a global geography. In the Arctic, which has strategic importance on the global scale, a stable international political order has prevailed since the Cold War. It is important to understand the nature of the international political order that dominates the region in order to maintain this stability in the coming years, where the possibility of conflicts of interest is expected to increase. In this paper, firstly, it is questioned whether there is a stable order as defined in the International Relations discipline; and then the international order in the region is discussed in the context of three different theoretical approaches.

Küresel ısınmanın etkilerinin daha belirgin bir şekilde hissedilmeye başlandığı son yıllarda Arktik Bölge, sadece iklimsel konularda değil, siyasi konularda da ön plana çıkmaya başlamıştır. Buzul kütlelerinin erimesiyle bölgeye erişim kolaylaşmış; zengin doğal kaynak potansiyeli ve yeni ticaret yollarının kullanım ihtimali bölgeyi küresel bir coğrafya haline dönüştürmüştür. Küresel ölçekte stratejik öneme sahip olan bölgede, Soğuk Savaş’tan bu yana istikrarlı bir uluslararası politik düzen hâkimdir. Çıkar çatışmaları ihtimalinin artacağı öngörülen önümüzdeki yıllarda bu istikrarın sürdürülebilmesi için, bölgeye hâkim uluslararası siyasi düzenin doğasını anlamak önemlidir. Çalışmada, öncelikle Uluslararası İlişkiler disiplininde tanımlandığı şekliyle istikrarlı bir düzen olup olmadığı sorgulanmış, ardından bölgedeki uluslararası düzen üç farklı teorik yaklaşım bağlamında ele alınmıştır.
