Bilateral Reindeer Grazing Treaty
Sweden and Norway have signed a new treaty granting Same reindeer owners the right to let their herds graze on pastures in both countries. The so-called reindeer grazing convention regulates the rights of the reindeer owners for the next thirty years.
Some local groups of the ethnic minorities on both sides of the border have objected against the agreement. They fear that their own pasture grounds will be exploited by reindeer breeders from other regions.
