Research project This Interreg finances research project is shared by Swedish and Norwegian researchers. It aims to scrutinize the complex structure of reindeer herding economy, in a surch for alternative strategies, survival functions, and differences between the two countries.
In spite of low economic return in Sámi reindeer management in most regions, there has been an increasing human population in the reindeer industry during the latest decades. This deviates from the expectations given by modern purpose rationality. There are indications that the reindeer managing Sámi practices in Weberian sense a substantial rationality. Analysis at hand indicate close connections between landscape, management type, and type of rationality in reindeer management. The project is based on two major hypotheses: 1) The life form hypothesis: reindeer management has an particular value for the performers being the condition for an active choice of remaing within the industry, 2) The capital hypothesis: lacking recognition of the resources of the reindeer managing Sámi is/ has been limiting their establishment in capital requiring undertakings.
