Summary/Abstract: The transformations within the international system and the European security environment have necessitated the approach of alternative perspectives concerning the Far North. Today, the Sector Theory, which sets the limit of the sovereignty of riparian states over the Arctic region, no longer seems to properly provide a balance of power and security in northern Europe. The article uses techniques of qualitative methodology to explore the consequences of the new geopolitical evolutions in the Arctic Ocean and their impact on the European security system, but also the specific way in which the Arctic Ocean has become, in recent years, a specific region of the confluence of strategic interests for the Russian Federation, on the one hand, and the Scandinavian states, the EU and NATO, on the other hand.
