Greenland[edit]

Greenland should be shaded to indicate its participation in the Arctic Council as an autonomous protectorate of Denmark. Greenland is Danish territory, and Denmark is a member of the Arctic Council.

Arctic Cup[edit]

We should probably mention the Arctic Cup which was apparently a Russian-sponsored hockey tournament that took place as part of a 2011 Arctic Council meeting in St. Petersberg. See here and here for sources. JesseW, the juggling janitor 03:53, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Membership[edit]

The lead paragraph says, "Only states with territory in the Arctic can be members of the Council". Makes sense but no source to check. I'm mildly baffled here. Given the nature of the intergovernmental organization, it practically makes no sense for any country not to have sovereignty over the Arctic zone to wish to be a member. Observer states are one thing, but why would say Italy or Bulgaria ever wish to join? Not being an expert on this organization, I cannot help but think the sovereign states to control the lands within the Arctic came together to create this body for their own needs and this was all. I'm in favour of rewording the lead. --Edin Balgarin (talk) 12:33, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
