Kobe University Polar Cooperation Research Centre (PCRC) was established in 2015 to undertake Arctic international legal and policy studies under Theme 7 of ArCS project. PCRC will convene a special session at 12th Polar Law Symposium held in Hobart, Tasmania, 2-5 December 2019, to showcase the result of international collaborative research over the last 5 years and to consider the post-ArCS research agenda.
The Special Session will include presentations by Kentaro Nishimoto (Tohoku University, Japan), Betsy Baker (North Pacific Research Board, USA), Tanja Joona (University of Lapland, Finland), Baozhi Cheng (Shanghai Institutes of International Studies, China), and several early-career scholars from Iceland, United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia.
