An analysis of Sami indigenous research
The Sami people are an indigenous group from northern Europe, in parts of Finland, Norway, and Sweden as well as parts of the Kola Peninsula in Russia. They are descendants of the people who first inhabited the northern regions of Europe shortly after the end of the last Ice Age. As a minority, the Sami need protection and support to ensure the survival of their nine languages, their culture and their way of life. The EU-funded INREPOSA project will examine the relationship between Sami politics, research and the state and determine the consequences for research-based policymaking. It will test the relevance of the Settler Colonial Theory to better understand Finland’s policies in the Sami region.
