International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs
The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights has established a Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities that formulates recommendations and proposals on appropriate measures to prevent and remedy violations of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous peoples and communities.
The working group paid a research visit to the Republic of Kenya from March 1-19, 2010. Based on meetings held with government authorities, civil society organizations, indigenous communities, and other stakeholders in Nairobi, Kitengela, Nakuru, Mariashoni, Mau Forrest Baringo, Bogoria, Nanyuki, Isiolo, Dol Dol, and Garissa, the report describes the situation of the indigenous populations and makes recommendations to the government, civil society organizations, and the international community in Kenya. This report is a bilingual English and French publication.
