What is the legacy?

Sami pupils

After the second world war, the norwegianization policies were gradually dropped. However, it took a lot of Sami activism and a few decades until it was possible to get education in Sami. The reforms of the 1990’s have brought with them both positive things (like the ratification of the ILO convention 169 by Norway) and negative developments (centralisation and standardization of the educational system has diminished the autonomy of the schools in the areas inhabited by the Sami).
