This 1st Spanish Symposium on the Arctic Region aims at creating an interdisciplinary space of discussion and debate among different Arctic scientists, policy makers and stakeholders. Including academics and representatives of both Arctic and non- Arctic research Institutes, the congress will give a general overview of the most relevant issues related with the North- Pole region and derived from climate change. It must be noticed, considering that Spain is developing its first Polar Strategy, that this is the first Spanish Symposium on Arctic issues from the perspective of Human and Social Sciences, particularly, International Law and Political Science. The Congress not only intends to be a forum for scientific discussion, but also a way to make known among students of the main challenges present in the Arctic.

The symposium takes place in Madrid (Spain) on November the 13th, 2014.
