Sámi Research Ethics - Current Work and Future Prospects

Sámi Research Ethics - Current Work and Future Prospects

An Arctic Seven online seminar on November 30.

Indigenous ethics guidelines have existed for quite some time in parts of the world. From the decolonizing critique of the way dominant research acted in indigenous communities, the effort is now on articulating culturally responsive and sound research ethics for scholars working with, from and/or in indigenous communities. This happens worldwide. For decades countless Indigenous research ethics guidelines have been established in all possible levels from national research funding agencies to local communities. In this workshop, we present examples, statements and reflections from different parts of Sápmi, and we discuss where to go next. The presentations and conversations will enable reflections of methodology, position, community relations and doing research in practice.
