Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Currently, the main focus of my research lies in international law and human rights concerning more particularly the rights of local communities and indigenous peoples. My expertise is in the field of land and resource governance, self-determinaton issues, business and human rights as well as Arctic studies. I hold a PhD of laws from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel where I defended a thesis on the legal significance of the right of indigenous peoples to self-determination and its implications for the Sámi people. I am also the co-editor of Society, Environment and Human Security in the Arctic Barents Region published by Routledge in 2018 and the special editor of the Yearbook of Polar Law, vol. 10 published by Brill-Nijhoff. At the moment, I lead a network project on “the implementation of the rights of the Indigenous Sámi people as a means to achieve inclusive and sustainable development in the Nordic countries”, financed by the Nordic Research Council. I am the co-chair of the Nordic Network for Sámi and Indigenous Peoples Law (NORSIL) and a steering member of the Thematic Network on Arctic Sustainable Resources and Social Responsibility. I also teach international law and the rights of indigenous peoples at the University of Helsinki.
