Research collaboration on Sámi children's right to learn their language in Russian schools
Umeå University PhD student Ekaterina Zmyvalova visited the Sociology of Law Department in October to present her research on the right of Sámi children of Russia to learn their language at school. The department has a long-standing tradition of research on children's rights and is prominent within the Child Rights Institute, a network gathering researchers within the field at Lund University.
Senior Professor Per Wickenberg and Senior Lecturer Anna Sonander mentored Zmyvalova during her visit and helped organise the research seminar. They recently invited Zmyvalova, whose socio-legal research combines the legal method and the interviews, to continue cooperating with the Child Rights Institute. She will return to the Sociology of Law Department at the end of the spring semester and again at the end of August to participate in the Research Committee on Sociology of Law Conference.
