The Judging Panel writes about this paper:
"The panel found this piece fascinating in shedding light on a unique regime of governance – the Arctic Council. The authors show how a relatively informal system of regional governance has evolved over time to become an influential regional body by establishing an epistemic community and developing expertise. The methodological approach adopted by the authors in exposing these developments demonstrated a real flair for understanding the complex aspects of institutional organisation and change."
