Nordic Experiences on Identity, Autonomy and Security with Greenland and the Åland Islands as Case Studies

Research profile seminar

Human Rights seminar

Nordic solutions to minority and indigenous issues and for self-government vary and range from more limited cultural autonomy to strong forms of territorial self-government with constitutional and occasionally with international entrenchment. Security and military considerations have not been much discussed in legal works as an aspect of self-government, even though security has had empirically a defining role in the introduction and design of self-government solutions and even though ensuring the security of citizens is a core component of the sovereign at least since the work of Thomas Hobbes. The presentation review core questions of the minority/indigenous ¿ self-government ¿ security nexus by looking at the different conditions, solutions and debates on Greenland and the Åland Islands, focusing on 20th century developments. How is this nexus modified in the process of the transformation of global politics and law?
