Abstract

79 THE RIGHT OF AUTONOMOUS REGIONS TO PARTICIPATE IN NORDIC CO-OPERATION By Göran Lindholm The Faroe Islands and Aland were able to participate in Nordic co-operation as from 1971, when the Helsinki Agreement was altered. That meant that all popular assemblies in the Nordic countries were then represented in the Nordic Council. In 1980 the Danish Government submitted a proposal that Greenland (which obtained self-government in 1979), the Faroes and Aland should have independent representation in the Nordic Council. At present representatives of autonomous territories are included in national delegations. To study the matter a committee was appointed, consisting of the executive body of the Nordic Council and the Ministers of Justice of the Nordic countries (the so-called Petri Committee). The report of the committee established that the position of the Nordic autonomies in Nordic co-operation was to be consolidated as follows: a) The Faroes, Greenland and Aland are to have two members in the Nordic Council. To the Council of Ministers the autonomies are to appoint members in a similar manner as . the sovereign states do. b) The autonomies are to have additional right to participate in Commissions and commit- tees of the Council. c) The
