Summary/Abstract: Arctic region has become a significant region for the last three decades and thanks to the natural richness of the region and the emergence of a new transportation northern route owing to global warming, even the non-Arctic states have started to have scientific, environmental, economic, logistic and social interests on the region. The interest of the Baltic states has also recently increased despite their traditionally weak links with the Arctic. This study aims to understand how these small Baltic states negotiate their interests regarding Arctic issues. For this reason, this chapter consists of two main parts. The first one deals with the Arctic issue itself and the second part is about the Baltic states’ approach towards the Arctic in recent years and their efforts to take part in the Arctic negotiations defending their interests over intergovernmental organizations like the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS), the Arctic Council, the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
