Truth commissions on violations against indigenous peoples In 2018 the Norwegian Parliament established a truth and reconciliation commission to look into historic abuses committed against the Norway’s Sami and Kven minorities. But within the Sami population there was significant resistance against this process. Similar commissions are underway or being discussed within and beyond Norway. This roundtable discusses the potential and possible pitfalls of truth commissions looking into abuses against indigenous peoples in a comparative perspective. Roundtable chaired by Elin Skaar (CMI). Participants: Aaron Spitzer (UiB), Eva Maria Fjjellheim (UiT), and Camilia Gianella (CMI).
