Russia is one of the 8 member states of the Arctic Council, so the Arctic is one of the priority areas of Russia’s foreign policy. Another player in the Arctic territories in cooperation with Russia is Belarus, which can provide assistance in many areas related to technological progress. In this article, the author examines which areas of cooperation between Russia and Belarus are the most successful, and what platforms (The Union State of Russia and Belarus or the EAEU) and institutions exist for this purpose. In addition, it is important to consider the problems that arise in the process of cooperation, as well as the question of whether a confrontation is possible within the integration association. The author also notes further lines of cooperation and opportunities for both states in the Arctic.

In this article, the author identifies key features of the strategy of Spain in the Arctic region. It focuses on the geographical features of the Spanish Arctic policy and draws parallels in some aspects with other states with similar status (France, Italy, Poland). The author defines the research, economic and political interests of the Spanish state in the Arctic, and also defines the main achievements and results. Great emphasis is placed on the importance of the scientific presence of Spain in the polar region, which allowed the kingdom to gain access to various international associations and institutions related to the Arctic. The main ideas of this study are the desire to show the Spanish Arctic policy as a successful version of the implementation of soft power, conducted through the concept of scientific diplomacy. The second important aspect is the relationship of the Arctic research process with the European integration process and Madrid’s desire to combine the efforts of the European Union in the development and implementation of the Arctic strategy. Such actions find understanding among countries such as France, Italy and Poland.

The Arctic Region experienced a series of significant changes due to shifting climate conditions, resulting in multiple opportunities and challenges for international actors, and encouraging both Arctic and non-Arctic states to promote their own national interests. Hence, the region has become a global priority, and a focus of scientific studies across the Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) disciplines. This study systematically analyses the literature on the Arctic Region, conducting a multidimensional bibliometric analysis and content analysis on the basis of semantic clustering. The purpose of the analysis is to determine future Arctic-related research themes. The study follows a three-level research framework. The first level of the analysis highlights a disciplinary shift in the Arctic literature from Natural Sciences towards Social Sciences and Humanities, particularly, focusing on the environment, technology, political and energy-related issues. The second level identifies 9 research themes which are validated in the third level. The third level reveals the most prominent terms and prioritized research areas in the Arctic literature, namely, Governance, Security Issues, Economic Factors, Legal Issues, Energy and Natural Resources, Logistics, Climate Change and Environment, Technology, and Socio-cultural and Ethnic Issues.
