Abstract

Book Reviews 459 Timo Koivurova, Pamela Lesser et al. (eds), Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic: A Guide to Best Practice (Edward Elgar Publishing Inc., 2016) 311 pp. Since the 1960s, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) legal procedure has been developed and used by diverse nations to ascertain and limit or pr - e vent environmental harm from proposed development activities. Hence, with the rapid increase in major economic activities in the Arctic – especially as it concerns the exploitation of the region’s natural resources and the potential impact on its vulnerable ecosystem – this book by Timo Koivurova and Pamela Lesser (with other co-authors1) is as timely as it is relevant and authoritative on the subject-matter. Grounded in thorough empirical research (involving direct interviews with stakeholders and the use of questionnaires) and utilising a best practice comparative model with relevant theoretical foundation, the book successfully clarifies the EIA legal procedures of the eight Arctic coun- tries and examines how they might be improved, where necessary, in view of best practices and the demands of the peculiarities of the Arctic region. The core aspect of the book is made up of an ‘introduction’ and fifteen chapters. For the most
