Norway was granted sovereignty over Svalbard by the 1920 Svalbard Treaty

Norway was granted sovereignty over Svalbard by the 1920 Svalbard Treaty. This book examines the Treaty, emphasizing four aspects: the character of Norwegian sovereignty; the scope and nature of the requirement of non-discrimination; the prohibition of military use of the archipelago; and the application of the Treaty and the Mining Code in the maritime areas around Svalbard.

From terra nullius to Norwegian sovereignty

From terra nullius to Norwegian sovereignty. Oslo 1995 p 124. 11. defines as, a sovereign character, which leads him to conclude that Norway enjoys sole sovereignty over Svalbard. Having defined Norwegian sovereignty over Svalbard as an ordinary one, professor Ulfstein goes on to indicate that notwithstanding this conclusion, Norwegian sovereignty may be subject to interpretations of the Svalbard Treaty which may imply some sort of limitation on this sovereignty in regard to contracting parties’ equal rights, stipulated in the Treaty.

The Svalbard Treaty (originally the Spitsbergen Treaty) recognises the sovereignty of Norway over the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, at the time called Spitsbergen

The Svalbard Treaty (originally the Spitsbergen Treaty) recognises the sovereignty of Norway over the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, at the time called Spitsbergen. The exercise of sovereignty is, however, subject to certain stipulations, and not all Norwegian law applies. The treaty regulates the demilitarisation of the archipelago. The signatories were given equal rights to engage in commercial activities (mainly coal mining) on the islands. As of 2012, Norway and Russia are making use of this right.

Terra nullius stems from the Roman law term res nullius, meaning nobody's thing. The territorial dispute was eventually resolved by the Svalbard Treaty of 9 February 1920 which recognized Norwegian sovereignty over the islands. According to the Roman law res nullius, or things without an owner, such as wild animals (ferae beastiae), lost slaves and abandoned buildings could be taken as property by anyone by seizure. A part of the debate over the history of terra nullius is when the term itself was first used.

Referring to the Spitsbergen Treaty as the "Svalbard Treaty" would be an extension of this irresponsibility. Jonas Poole (talk) 19:37, 31 January 2010 (UTC). For instance, the Governor of Svalbard, the Norwegian Polar Institute, the Government of Norway, CIA World Fact Book and the BBC. The single source referring to the "Spitsbergen Treaty" is a translation of a German guidebook, which is rather unreliable on this issue as it refers to whole archipelago as "Spitsbergen". I would also note that the most comprehensive scholarly work on the subject is named The Svalbard Treaty: From Terra Nullius to Norwegian Sovereignty written by Geir Ulfstein.
