Anna-Marias research interests are in the politics of natural resources, in particular in situations where natural resource extractive activities and indigenous land-use management meet.

Her dissertation project explores how increased natural resource extractive activities impact the planning of natural resource management in Sweden throw the lens of reindeer husbandry. The aim with the study is to analyse how different planning practitioners affect different conceptions of reindeer husbandry practice and land use, and also what knowledge and rights claims are considered legitimate in decisions about extractive industries in northern Sweden. The study, which has a historical perspective, is focusing on the period from the 70′ until now, and the empirical material consists of interviews and archive material. The theoretical framework used is based on the relationship between power and resistance inspired by for example Foucauldian analyses, governmentality and Indigenous rights theory.

Research Project:

The dissertation project is a part of the Centre of Excellence for Resources; Extractive Industries and Sustainable Arctic Communities (REXSAC). REXSAC focuses on extractive resource industries in the Arctic as cultural, social, economic, and ecological phenomena – from analysis of why resource extraction commences, to what consequences it has for communities in the Arctic and beyond, and what opportunities exist for transitioning toward post-extractive futures.
