Journal of Indigenous Peoples Rights
The rights of the coastal Saami form the focus for this paper, which has been written by one of the advisers at the GÁLDU Resource Centre for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It explores the views on the rights of the coastal Saami that prevail today in the light of earlier perceptions and practices within sea fishing. The challenge is to attempt to say something about what this development entails in purely legal terms. The paper is one of the first to seek to provide an overview of what has been done with regard to surveys and research in the area, and reveals a great need for further documentation and research. We hope that you will enjoy reading it.
