This chapter examines the role or contribution of the law on environmental injustice in the Russian Federation. It analyzes the ways the Russian legal system can either help or hinder the protection both of the lands inhabited by indigenous peoples and of their rights to those lands and the resources on them. It suggests that while Russia’s laws on environmental protection and indigenous peoples’ rights are progressive in nature, the instability of the legal environment and the unequal access to information about the law and about changes in the law continue to be major problems for the Russian legal system.

Keywords:   environmental injustice, Russian Federation, legal system, indigenous peoples’ rights, land, environmental protection, legal environment, unequal access to information
