dc.description.abstractAlthough the Arctic is treated as a “global commons” area, the management of its security affairs have been largely unsuccessful. Due to the collapse of the Arctic military alliance after the annexation of Crimea in 2014, the United States and neighboring arctic nations have sharpened their rhetoric against the resurgence of Russia’s military sea-air capabilities, leaving out security concerns in favour of environmental issues and the like, all whilst tensions rise. Scholars have recently proposed the formulation of the AMCC in 2019 to reduce this tension and promote continual peace, yet no studies thus far question the feasibility of creating and adhering to an AMCC amongst disjointed arctic nations. With Russia assuming chairmanship of the Arctic Council from May 2021 until 2023, security will once again be on the table for discussion, establishing the importance of determining whether the AMCC is an effective regulatory framework going forward. Thus, this thesis confronts the issue through the lens of Russia’s sea-air military activities, specifically: How do Russia’s sea-air military activities challenge the effectiveness of the Arctic Military Code of Conduct (AMCC)? Empirically, 5 responses from each A7 state were coded to determine the attitudes towards seven selected Russian sea-air military activities, thus illustrating the areas in which Russia has already challenged pre-existing Codes of Conduct and will continue to do so, signalling its ineffectiveness even before its establishment.
