Canada & The Circumpolar World
The paper is an analytical piece that aims to explain why in 2016 Canada put in place a moratorium on the future development of offshore oil and gas resources in the Canadian Arctic.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the factor/s that led to the adoption of the policy of the moratorium on the development of offshore oil and gas resources in the Canadian Arctic. The study will provide the rationale for as to why Canada acted uniquely in the context of the Arctic and so detached from the norm established by other arctic states such as Norway and Russia. I want to do a comparative study but I am open to change this.
The variables I would like to use are uploaded in the document. The methodology section can be changed as seen fit but i would like to have a mthod of difference (compartive politics) approach taken.
Will be available to communicate throughout.
