The Yearbook of Polar Law IV (2012): 305311 Damien Degeorges* The Arctic is no longer of interest for scientists only. A clear shift occurred with the consequences of climate change, the melting of ice and a growing demand of natural resources. At the same time, the region offfers a unique opportunity to further engage growing economies like China on climate research through international cooperation. That is in a mutual interest in order to get the best data to adapt to climate change and find a creative way to resolve the global climate challenge. "Creative diplomacy"1 can be applied in the Arctic. Without being a power, Greenland has both the climate "laboratory" that is needed to further engage large CO2-emitters and resource consumers into international cooperation on polar research as well as the strategic resources particularly Rare Earth Elements (REE) that are needed to secure global green growth. In both cases, China is a key issue, being the largest CO2-emmitter and having a quasi-monopoly on the world's REE-production. Greenland becomes an important issue in that context. The self-ruled territory is in a state-building process and a potential Greenlandic state would need to have a strong enough "back"
