PhD Kristina Sehlin MacNeil: Sámi Connections to Land and Extractive Violence


Sámi in Sweden are heavily impacted by extractive industry activities like mining, forestry, hydro and wind power that want access to Sámi lands. In addition tourism and effects of climate change are complicating situations for traditional Sámi livelihoods like reindeer herding. Kristina Sehlin MacNeil will talk about impacts that loss of land have on Sámi people through a framework of cultural, structural and extractive violence, including some negative consequences such as lateral violence.
