The delegates of the 2002 General Assembly instructed ICC to assist Inuit organizations in pursuing issues of forced relocations as matters of human rights violations. In particular, ICC assisted the northern Greenland organization Hingitaq 53, which represents the victims and their descendants of those that were forced to move from their traditional lands in 1953 to make way for the American Air Force Base in Thule. ICC assisted Hingitaq 53 in pursuing this matter all the way to the Supreme Court of Denmark. Unfortunately, ICC and Hingitaq 53 were only partially successful. While the Danish courts ruled that the relocation was illegal and done against the will of the people, they did not grant them the right to return.
