Minorities and Indigenous Peoples Although human rights are primarily concerned with the rights of the individual, the international debate on human rights has not viewed this as an obstacle to identifying groups of people who are especially vulnerable to violations of human rights and whose protection may require some specific measures to be taken. Fundamentally, the starting point for looking more closely at certain groups is to guarantee the same human rights for everyone. However, the realisation of this idea might require so-called positive discrimination in order to guarantee what should be equal human rights also in practice to e.g. women, refugees or to members of ethnic minorities. In several conventions on human rights the question of the rights of minorities is presented in connection with the ban on discrimination. Is it justified to provide special services or privileges for minorities as the kind of positive discrimination that aims at securing equality of human rights? At which point does this positive discrimination turn into granting privileges and thus discriminating against other people? If no special services or benefits are provided, can the actual inequality found in a society be characterised as discrimination although in formal terms members of a minority are treated the same way as other people? The latter question arises, for example, in a situation where the state does not provide or support education in any other language than the official language of the state in question. Although in formal terms everyone is treated equally, in practice part of the population may be excluded from educational opportunities.

Case Study: Sami
Because of the scarcity on information on the Russian Sami and the small number of Sami in Russia, this case study will focus mostly on the Sami in the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden and Finland.
The Sami are an indigenous people who inhabit areas in the north of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Total numbers are small, ranging from 30,000 to 70,000 according to the Sami Council ( ). Some sources put the upper estimates at 90,000 ( ) or 100,000, although 70,000 seems to be the most widely accepted estimate. The distribution across the four countries is as follows: between 40,000 and 45,000 in Norway, 17,000 in Sweden, 5,700 in Finland and about 2,000 in Russia ( ). The large range of the estimates is explained by the different definitions used to describe who is and isn’t a Sami. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, Sami were defined as reindeer herders in Sweden, meaning that all sedentary Sami were instantly transformed into Swedes. The contemporary definition places a heavy emphasis on self-identification and knowledge of the Sami language. The Swedish law on the Sami parliament states that:
“Sami, under this law, is any person who considers themselves to be Sami, and

The first authoritative reports are now coming in on the fate of the five isolated tribes of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, hit hard by the Asian quake disaster. All appear to have survived. The more numerous Nicobarese tribe, however, has suffered huge loss of life.
  • The 270 Jarawa, who lived in complete isolation until recently, appear to have escaped unharmed. They almost certainly were living in the forest when the tsunami struck.
  • Most of the Onge, who live in two government-built settlements, fled to high ground as the sea level fell, and so survived. They are currently being supported by a neighbouring community in a school house. Their awareness of the ocean and its movements has been accumulated over 60,000 years of inhabiting the islands. The Onge had already suffered a disastrous fall in their population, from 672 in 1901 to barely 100 today.
  • Reports from overflights of Sentinel Island, home of the most isolated of all the tribes, the Sentinelese, indicate that many have been seen on the beaches. The Sentinelese fired arrows at the helicopter overhead. However, confident assertions by the authorities that all the Sentinelese have been accounted for are premature, as no-one has any idea of their population (estimates range from 50 - 250), and landing on the island is impossible.

20. Common Objectives And Joint Measures Of The Sami Parliaments
The sami, in common with indigenous peoples all over the world, have claimed The sami Parliaments see the Decade of indigenous People as an opportunity
The UN International Decade of Indigenous People Common Objectives and Joint Measures of the Sami Parliaments 1. The Decade of the World’s Indigenous People –
Common Objectives and Joint Measures
of the Sami Parliaments
By declaring the years 1995–2004 as the International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People, the General Assembly of the United Nations has expressed the will to place indigenous matters on the international agenda for a period of ten years. When the UN member states now undertake to improve the living conditions of indigenous peoples, there is also a great challenge to the indigenous peoples themselves to give the Decade a concrete content that will produce results. The Sami Parliaments of Finland, Norway and Sweden are prepared to take on the inherent responsibilities by presenting own initiatives to the UN system, the nation states, and in the collaboration with other indigenous peoples. Through various international conferences, such as the World Conference on Women, the World Conference on Environment and Development, the World Conference on Human Rights, and other important meetings, the UN has addressed the demands and rights of indigenous peoples. The increasing focus on the situation of indigenous peoples world-wide forms the basis of the United Nations International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People. The Sami Parliaments will also participate in, and assume responsibility for this development, on their own terms. The framework of the Sami Parliaments’ work will in part be the formalised programmes on which the Decade is based, but also to a large extent the Sami culture and way of thinking; in other words, the very foundation of the Sami’s existence as a people.
