2022 marks the tenth anniversary of the Current Developments in Arctic Law (CDAL). Over the years, law and policy toward the Arctic have noticed crucial advancements in response to the region's novel challenges. In addition to environmental and climate change-related consequences, the regional geopolitical reframing and the impacts of great power political dynamics influencing the Arctic tend to result in a shift in Arctic governance.

The Volume of the CDAL will include a special theme – Arctic governance: crafting a new normal? However, the Volume welcomes contributions beyond the special theme. The expected contributions are short papers on current issues related to Arctic law, policy, politics, regional and institutional aspects, etc. Examples of contributions are short academic articles, review papers, popularized narratives of research findings, a summary of research or other projects initiated, conference or seminar reports, analysis of news stories, etc.

The publication is non-peer-reviewed but considered scientific. It is an open-access publication. The ideal length of the contribution should be between 500 and 3000 words. However, longer pieces are welcomed, too. The Volume is expected to release in December 2022.
