Abstract
In the first part of this study, the author brings out the need for an Arctic Region Council by examining what would be its main pruposes. These would be to facilitate cooperaertaion generally among its members and, in particular, with respect to the following matters: protection of the environment, coordination of scientific resarch, conservation of living resources, economic development, health and well-being of the Arctic inhabitants, and peaceful uses of the Arctic.
The second part outlines the main reasons for the establishment of a Council by the conclusion of a treaty and presents the basic draft provisions oif such a treaty. These would cover: the geographical area of the Council's activities, the purposes of the Council, the conditions of membership, the main organs of the Council and their respective powers and mode of operation, the holding of meetings, the sharing of experiences, the settlement of disputes, the manner of entry into force, and the procedure of amendments and review. The founding mmebers of the Council would be the eight States whose terrotory projects north of the Arctic Circle: Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. Membership would be open to non-Arctic States having demonstrated a sufficient interest in Arctic issues, as well as to certain non-State entities such as Northwest Teritories and Greenland, and non-governmental organizations such as the Arctic Aboriginal Conference.
