The first International Symposium, ‘Looking Beyond the International Polar Year: Emerging and Re-emerging Issues in International Law and Policy in the Polar Regions’ was held on 7-10 September 2008 at the University of Akureyri, Iceland. The Symposium was timed to coincide with the launch of the new postgraduate program in Polar Law offered by the University of Akureyri. The Polar Law Symposium is an annual event and the Symposiums proceedings have been published by the Brill publishing house in the Yearbooks of Polar Law.

The purpose of the Symposiums is to examine, in detail, the implications of the challenges faced by the Polar Regions for international law and policy and to make recommendations on appropriate actions by States, policy makers and other international actors to respond to these emerging and re-emerging challenges.

Each year the Symposium brings a great number of renowned scholars, post-doctoral and doctoral researchers from all across the world to share research-based scientific knowledge on diverse polar relevant issues. Leading experts in the field of both Polar Law and Policies are invited to give keynote lectures. The purpose of the Symposium is to examine, in detail, the implications of the challenges faced by the Polar Regions for international law and policy and to make recommendations on appropriate actions by states, policy makers and other international actors to respond to these emerging and re-emerging challenges.
