Self-determination and Indigenous Peoples. Sami Rights and Northern Perspectives
Self-determination is a fundamental right of indigenous peoples. Although frequently discussed from a theoretical basis, it is less often discussed from a practical and applied perspective. This document looks at self-determination from the position of the indigenous peoples of Sámiland, Greenland and northern Canada and how they can fully express this right. The answers provided vary according to the conditions in each country, but all share a deep concern that indigenous self-determination be recognized both nationally and internationally.
