International co-operation of Arctic universities in the circumpolar geopolitical context

The aims of this paper are to show the historical context of circumpolar co-operation with the focus on some of the most successfull frameworks of collaboration; to describe new geopolitical imperatives in the Arctic that, on the one hand, challenge the existing transnational connections and, on the other, provide new context and content for colloboration; to emphasize the role and efforts of Arctic universities in making the Circumpolar  North  an international educational and research space. Universities with a strong international agenda can play a significant role in developing Northern dimension policies through initiating, organizing and co-ordinating educational and reasearch projects and events. Some best practicies of international co-operation of Arctic universities are described with the main emphasis on the Arctic Floating University, a regular Arctic expedition organazid by Northern (Arctic) Federal University in Russia.
