As part of discussions with the International Peace Research Institute of Oslo, under a planned project coordinated by Åshild Kolås, Hao Shiyuan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences was hosted by Anders Oskal and Elna Sara of ICR, October 19-22. The fall slaughter in Oskal's home reindeer husbandry district in Troms was visited and they also took time to visit the Sami school in Bardufoss. Hao Shiyuan was accompanied by a Tibetan student at the University of Oslo, Tashi Nyima, who acted as translator.


Hao Shiyuan is a Chinese researcher who has written about Evenk reindeer husbandry in Northern China and the recent challenges they face. Discussions about a future visit to reindeer husbandry regions in China were discussed as well outlining the challenges faced by reindeer husbandry in the Sami region.


We have added pictures from the visit to the round up, courtesy of Tashi Nyima.
