International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs
The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights has established the Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities, which undertook a country visit to the Republic of Rwanda in December 2008. This is the report from that visit. The report gives an account of meetings held with government authorities, civil society organizations, indigenous communities, and other stakeholders; it describes the situation of the indigenous populations of the Batwa population of Rwanda and it makes recommendations to the Rwandan government, civil society organizations, and the international community. The report is published both in English and French.
