Abstract [en]

Asymmetric natural resource conflicts between extractive industries and Indigenous groups often have devastating consequences for Indigenous peoples. Due to colonial societal structures, where Indigenous perspectives on land management are frequently trivialised or ignored in favour of extractivist ideologies, many Indigenous groups are struggling to maintain their lands. This chapter draws on two case studies to compare situations of conflicts connected to natural resource exploitation, experienced by Laevas reindeer herding Sami community in northern Sweden and Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners in South Australia. The chapter builds on my PhD research where I introduced the concept of extractive violence as a complement to Galtung's violence triangle. Through building an analysis on concepts including connection to country, asymmetric conflict and extractive violence, deeper understandings of conflicts between extractive industries and Indigenous communities can be created. The chapter concludes that in order to achieve conflict transformation and address the violent structures many Indigenous groups are subjected to, the asymmetric power relations must be altered through the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives.
