The purpose is to analyze how domestic and international decision-making articulate, both politically and legally, within the framework of the ATS.


This analysis is pivotal to forecast the capability of response of the ATS, at the level of its parts and the system, before any given issues concerning it.


We´ll analyze the concept of resilience from a systemic perspective, with the objective of defining the processes, dimensions and known results.


The analysis will be developed from three different approaches:


  1. Leading cases of proven violations of the regulations of the ATS, focusing the processes that triggered conflicts and the interagency and international frameworks that guided its resolution.


  1. Marine protected areas (MPAs), focusing on how domestic or bilateral issues are then presented on the ATS multilateral level.


  1. The policy and decision making in of the operational tasks of the Joint Antarctic Naval Patrol of Argentina and Chile; and the use of the military forces in Antarctica.


This paper does not aim to arrive at definitive conclusions, but to carry out an inductive work that will result on a matrix of analysis, in order to gather institutional memory and jurisprudence that can be applicable in the future.
