This book compiles previously unpublished articles on various aspects of state and Saami relations, in different countries and in different periods of time. It features new research on the structural state-Saami relations and collects the findings of several research programmes under accessible topical headings.

European integration, regionalisation and the growing visibility of ethno-regional movements in Europe focus attention to various aspects of minority-majority relations and to the particular national solutions. This publication provides both information on and insight into the relations of a northern indigenous people and its relations to governments and surrounding societies.

The authors include scholars from Canada, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.

The potential readers of this collection comprise students of ethnicity and nationalism, researchers, decision-makers, journalists, members of social movements and others interested in minority issues, ethnic conflict, Nordic politics and Nordic-Russian relations. The well-focused approach of the book makes it excellent course literature.
