Lev Voronkov, Geopolitical Dimensions of Transport and Logistics Development in the BEATA
It is important to consider the transport cooperation in the Barents Euro-Arctic Region not only in light of the transport problems of this specific region, but also in a wider context, including the geopolitical one.
Jessica M. Shadian & Monica Tennberg, Legacies and Change in Polar Sciences
Providing the first comprehensive account to look explicitly at the relationship between global politics and science through an account of the International Polar Years (IPYs), this volume combines both interdisciplinary and multi-theoretical approaches to engage directly with the most recent debates in international relations scholarship.
Pertti Joenniemi & Alexander Sergunin, The Model of Twin Cities: Experiences from Northern Europe
Several towns at borders in central and northern Europe have joined pairs to intensify cross-border collaboration. They have also formed the City Twin Association to further their interests and to exchange ideas. Kirkenes in northern Norway and nearby Russian town of Nikel have recently signed a memorandum declaring their intention to develop their joint projects in the spirit of European twin cities.

From Rejection to Re-embracement: Language and Identity of the Russian Speaking Minority in Kirkenes, Norway
The language practices and identity of the Russian speaking minority in Kirkenes have recently been studied by the sociolinguist Anastasia Rogova. This MA research project was based on a collaboration between the European University at St. Petersburg and the Barents Institute. The report is open-access published here at the Barents Institute website
The cultural programme of the Barents Institute regards cultural exchange as a means of building alliances in the far north. It takes a special interest in the border-land between scholarship and creative art. In January 2007 it published a DVD on the 2006 Kirkenes international art workshop Connection Barents.
