Crime, law and justice in the circumpolar North: the Greenlandic experience in a comparative context / Kurt Taylor Griffiths.

Title: Crime, law and justice in the circumpolar North: the Greenlandic experience in a comparative context / Kurt Taylor Griffiths.
Author(s): Griffiths, Kurt Taylor.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Copenhagen: Copenhagen Business School
In: Crime, law and justice in Greenland. (1996.),
Abstract: Introductory article sketches broad outline of major justice-related issues in circumpolar North, particularly in predominantly Inuit Northwest Territories. Colonization usually involved "one land, one law", but Greenland Criminal Code was designed to incorporate traditional practices of social control. Research scholars and governments have been "blind" to indigenous peoples in North, despite high rates of crime and difficulties surrounding delivery of justice. Latter includes problem of helping ill-treated women, apparent discrimination against non-Inuit and lack of programmes for convicts.
