Deconstructing Structural Inequality: Gender Equality in Reindeer Herding Sámi Communities

Project: Co-funded project

Description in the public portal

The project establishes a network of scholars from Greenland, Finland, Norway, Russia, and Sweden. Its primary aim is to explore structural gender inequalities that apply to the Sámi people in general and reindeer-herding Sámi in particular. The project intends to collect and gather existing knowledge on structures causing gender disparities. In this context, one of the goals of the project is also to explore the framework of human rights applicable to Sámi women as it relates to the principle of non-discrimination on the basis of gender.
