The Sámi- The People, Their Culture and Languages (2015)
The Seminar “Sámi - The People, Their Culture and Languages and the Council of Europe” was organised in Inari, Finland on 27 – 29 November, 2014 by the Council of Europe and the Sámi Parliament in Finland. The event provided insight into the specific identities, traditions, cultures and languages of the Sámi and the common challenges faced by Sámi in Finland, Norway and Sweden in the fields of equality, effective participation in public life, and preservation of languages and cultures, reflecting also the perspective of youth, women and diverse groups within the minority. This publication attempts to assemble some of the points and problems evoked during the Seminar.
