Call for papers: Indigenous law

2019-03-20

There has been considerable development in national and international indigenous law in recent years. In the Nordic countries, for example, indigenous peoples and indigenous organizations have become more inclined to take individual complaints to UN agencies, while national courts have adopted a more reserved attitude.

Arctic Review on Law and Politics seeks to focus specifically on these important issues and convey new knowledge by publishing a thematic series of peer-reviewed articles exploring recent developments in indigenous law, and the editors hereby issue an open call for papers.

The journal is particularly interested in submissions that discuss international indigenous issues in relation to national law, including the recent national case law, and international law. Papers concerning comparative indigenous issues are also welcome, as are explorations of national indigenous and minority issues that may be of interest beyond a country's own borders. Social and political science approaches are also welcome.

The deadline for submitting a manuscript has been extended to September 1, 2019.
