Dávggas is a three year multi-institutional research project (2012-2014), funded by the Research Council of Norway (grant 215961) to examine the economics and land-use conflicts of reindeer herding in Finnmark.

Drawing on a political ecology approach, the project combines perspectives from human geography, sociology, economics and anthropology – with the aim of creating new knowledge and developing policy alternatives to improve economic outputs and reduce land-use conflicts within the industry.

In Northern Sámi, Dávggas means elastic, resilient, flexible, tough. The name highlights the resilience and flexible adaptation of pastoralism and reindeer herding – an important point of departure for both research and policy formulation.
