Abstract: This article focuses on pelagic opportunities for Asia-Pacific countries in an age of melting Arctic ice. While much attention focuses on the strategic pivot to Asia, a new cycle of Pacific relations indicates that such a turn has implications for the High North as well as for East-West interactions. This Article addresses problems of contested sovereignty in the coming age of the global Arctic with emphasis on Russia s role as gatekeeper to the problematic Northern Sea Route, China s emerging interests, and the role of middle powers such as South Korea in this increasingly congested space.
