Regional practices for protection the rights of indigenous peoples are the issue that requires reflection in line with the state ethno-national policy of modern federal states and in particular – the subjects of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation (AZRF).The purpose of the study is built around identifying the existing areas of regional systems for protecting the rights of indigenous peoples in the field of public administration. Based on this goal, the authors identify the tasks related to the doctrine of a regional system for protection the rights of indigenous peoples, determining the basic elements of these regional systems through the case study of the Russian Arctic and comparing common features of these systems with the goals of sustainable development. The solution of these tasks was based on the Russian federal legislation analysis, regulatory and legal acts of the Russian Arctic regions, as well as relevant scientific literature. The analysis led to the conclusion that the regional system for protecting the rights of indigenous peoples as a regional institutional and legal model varies depending on the specificity of each region, their distinctive features and process of development.By monitoring the current regional legislation and the law enforcement and management practices, the main elements of this system were identified.The goals of the regional systems for protecting the rights of indigenous peoples in the Russian Arctic coincide with the sustainable development goals defined by the UN, including the fight against poverty, infrastructure development, responsible consumption and production. The theoretical and practical significance of the study lies in the generalization of regional experience in the field of protecting the rights of indigenous peoples, as well as the development of a doctrinal definition of a regional system for protecting the rights of indigenous peoples.
