Онтологические основания индигенной политики: к пониманию природы «особых» интересов коренных народов Российского Севера

This paper represents the political aspect of indigenous issue. The authors are trying to answer the question: what are the “special” interests of indigenous peoples and what is their nature? Existing approaches to the study of this problem (i.e. representative political and regulatory) are subjected to a critical review. The authors argue that a key aspect of the political dimension of the indigenous problem lies in the relations that are associated with the rights of indigenous peoples to use land and other natural resources.
