Roundtable | Implementing Self-Government in the Nordic Countries, Greenland and Northern Canada
The INQ Research Chair on Northern Sustainable Development, in partnership with CIÉRA and INQ, proposes a public conference on the different models of political autonomy in the Arctic.
When: November 22 from noon to 1pm
In person: Université Laval, Gene-H.-Kruger Pavilion (room 2320-2330) (registration required)
The Arctic is home to a multitude of different and complex experiences of indigenous self-government. This roundtable will discuss and compare the various forms of territorial and non-territorial self-government arrangements that are developed in the Arctic. Jo Saglie, from the Institute of Social Research in Oslo, will discuss the Nordic Sami parliaments, a case of non-territorial self-government. Uffe Jakobsen and Henrik Larsen from the University of Copenhagen will discuss Greenland as a future sovereign state. Maria Ackrén from Ilisimatusarfik will present Greenland's involvement in international relations, and Thierry Rodon from Université Laval will discuss the different self-government arrangements in Canada's Inuit Nunangat.
