The biggest environmental disaster of our era, climate change, is causing rapid changes in the northern regions. My doctoral dissertation examines Finnish colonialism in the Sámi homeland and colonialist actions of the Finnish state in the crossfire of various business interests with an example of the Arctic Railway, as well as Sámi Indigenous people's environmental awareness and activity as protectors of the Northern nature.
