"Pushing Normative Change from the Bottom Up. Indigenous Peoples Organizations and Recognition of Indigenous Peoples Rights in Russia"

Prøveforelesningen starter kl. 10.15 samme dag og sted. 

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag:
How do the IPOs in Russia address the lamentable situation of Indigenous peoples and promote international Indigenous rights norms within the domestic context? Popular accounts often portray a one-sided picture of all-powerful authorities, oil and gas companies, and the IPOs lacking the agency to voice dissent in non-democratic Russia. My study of national and local IPOs in the Komi and Sakha (Yakutia) republics challenges the popular perceptions of these IPOs as powerless, entirely co-opted, and lacking agency with more nuanced data on their activities. My findings show that even a closed political regime offers some room for IPOs to contest the misbehavior of government and extractive companies. The IPOs utilize these tiny but existing opportunities to advocate for advancing the recognition of Indigenous peoples’ rights, using the normative power of international norms.
