The overview is based on a study 'Arctic Strategies & Policies: Inventory & Comparative Study' done by Heininen and published by the NRF and University of Lapland.

"Though the study is ready and just published, it is a draft until Sweden will approve and launch its arctic strategy or policy. The Swedish government intends to do so in the spring of 2011." Says Dr. Heininen.

The Northern Research Forum and the University of the Arctic put forth the proposal to initiate a project concerning an “Inventory and Assessment on Arctic and Northern policies, and the Interplay between Science and Politics in Northern Issues”.
