Technological progress and global warming, including rising temperatures, open new transit routes in the Arctic. The availability of natural resources in the region, including oil and gas, uranium and rare earth elements, is increasing. The war caused by Russia in Ukraine also has consequences for the relations between the states in the Arctic region. The aim of the article is to show that the Arctic region is not immune to changes in global security environment. These change snot only result in a redefinition of the international balance of power. Some countries located beyond the Arctic, with supra-regional aspirations, open to new strategic and economic goals in this region. Consequently, Arctic management system is changing and diversifying. It is becoming necessary to develop a new model for managing this region, considering changes in the security environment and much wider spectrum of international actors than ever before.
