The question of Antarctica’s future has assumed a greater level of importance in NZ affairs over the past few years. The Antarctic Treaty System (ATS), constructed since the late 1950s, remains robust with little sign of a direct challenge. Yet there are nonetheless considerable transformations taking place on the continent, many due to climate change, which may effect the stability and effectiveness of the ATS in the coming decades. As one of seven states which claim territory in Antarctica, and one of the five physical gateways to the continent, New Zealand is in a distinct position to examine the future of the legal, political and environmental status of the continent in the coming decades.
