Grant Success for Ice Law Project

(2 July 2015)


Through workshops and seminars held across six subprojects, the ICE LAW Project seeks to query how human interactions with the geophysical environment of the world’s frozen regions challenge Western normative principles of state power and legal authority that assume an idealised binary between land and water.

In addition to Professor Steinberg, Durham Geography staff associated with the project include Professor Gavin Bridge (leader of the Resources subproject) and Dr Kate Coddington (leader of the Migration subproject). Other key personnel are Claudio Aporta and Aldo Chircop (both of Dalhousie University, Canada), Timo Koivurova and Anna Stammler-Gossmann (both of the University of Lapland, Finland), Stuart Elden (Warwick University, UK), Stephanie Kane (Indiana University, US) and Jessica Shadian (Aarhus University, Denmark).

The ICE LAW Project is a project of IBRU, Durham University’s Centre for Borders Research and has been endorsed by the UArctic Thematic Network on Arctic Law.
