The Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law at the Arctic Centre, in cooperation with the UArctic Law Thematic Network and the UArctic Chair in Arctic Legal Research and Education, organizes a Finnish-India joint seminar focusing on various issues linked to Indigenous and Tribal peoples’ studies comparing the Arctic and India and its Himalayan region, hence bringing Indigenous perspectives from the region located in the Third Pole.

The Finnish National Agency for Education funds the project.
