CIL's Arctic Research Programme Materials Available Online

Singapore was accepted as one of six new Observers on the Arctic Council in 2013. To assist the Singapore government in its participation on the Arctic Council, the Centre for International Law (CIL) has undertaken the development of the Arctic Research Programme to build expertise and knowledge of Arctic issues. An integral part of the Programme is the compilation and provision of research materials, including maps, international and national documents, and academic articles and other scholarly works. Captain J. Ashley Roach, in his capacity as CIL Visiting Senior Research Fellow, has prepared a Bibliography of Arctic Documents, which will be expanded and updated as the Programme develops. All of the CIL's Arctic Research Programme materials and details are now available at "CIL Research Projects". For more information on the Programme, please click here.
