Niels Henrik Abels vei 36
For over 70 years seven different countries have claimed sovereignty over parts of Antarctica. But are these claims legitimate? This issue is now going to be considered by a group of philosophers.
We are at a unique point in history to influence the ethical dimensions of the decisions regarding territory and natural resources in Antarctica. With that end in mind, in this project we assess the moral grounds of claims over territory and natural resources in the White Continent, as well as the moral legitimacy of the Antarctic Treaty System.
