Abstract

The context I would like to start with is related to the 30th anniversary of The Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law (the Arctic Centre), with a title “How to Develop Human and Fundamental Rights Research in Finland”, organised in cooperation with the Human Rights Centre. The conference was held at the University of Lapland, both in Rovaniemi and Pyhätunturi, on 10-11 September 2015. In one of the sessions of the conference, we heard "the voice(s) of the young Sámi". That was even the name of the session. And these statements of the young Sámi scholars were really impressive but also emotional. I want to analyse these. I want to analyse what the Sámi think of the ratification of the C-169 (ILO 169) and about Finland and the other Nordic states they live in.

Keywords: ILO Convention 169, Sami, Finland
