Title

“Scraping the Pot:” San in Namibia Two Decades After Independence

Description

This study on the San of Namibia has again brought to light the need for a more broad-based approach involving all stakeholders, through participatory democracy, a legal framework for the recognition and enforcement of the rights of indigenous and marginalised peoples, and the establishment of a mechanism for participation and consultation. Such legal framework must be based on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which Namibia has endorsed, and the International Labour Organization (ILO) Convention No. 169 on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples, which I hope Namibia will ratify soon.

This study report is a stark reminder of the situation in which the San people live, and I trust that it will be widely distributed to gain societal understanding and appreciation of the need for specific legislation, programmes and projects aimed at ensuring equal enjoyment of all human rights and improvement of the lives of the San people.
