    Research on Best Practices for the Implementation of the Principles of ILO Convention No. 169- The Finnmark Act (Norway), Case Study #3

    31 July 2009

    This case study is an introduction to the Finnmark Act, and an analysis of the Act in relation to the ILO Convention. The study focuses on the process leading to the adoption of the Act and the substantive content of the Act, as well as the interdependency between the process and the substantive legal content of the Act. Besides focusing on State’s obligation to consult the indigenous peoples concerned through appropriate procedures whenever consideration is being given to legislative or other measures which may affect them directly, the case study also demonstrates that consultations can have enormous substantive influence.
