China’s Polar Frontiers: The Arctic

Last year, China published its Arctic Policy white paper, positioning itself as a stakeholder in Arctic governance and making waves internationally as countries tried to understand China’s intentions.

Mining the Deep: Is the International Seabed Authority up to the task?

Not just anyone can dig up the ocean floor, you would first have to make an agreement with the International Seabed Authority. As it turns out, 21 countries have contracts now and are preparing to mine the seabed. But is the world ready for that? Is the ISA up to the task? Now that we know what deep sea mining is and what risks are involved, we decide why deep sea mining should or should not go ahead in 2020. Guests: Gerard Barron, DeepGreen Dr Gregory Stone, DeepGreen Dr David Santillo, Greenpeace Matthew Gianni, Deep Sea Conservation Coalition Duncan Currie, Deep Sea Conservation Coalition Dr Helen Rosenbaum, Deep Sea Mining Campaign Dr Richard Steiner, University of Alaska Transcripts in Mandarin and English at chinadialogue and chinadialogueocean.
