About: Neither Here nor There: Indigeneity, Marginalisation and Land Rights in Post-Independence Namibia

In 2018 the Legal Assistance Centre (LAC) received a research grant from the United States Department of State, the purpose of which was to support the LAC to develop a series of concept chapters, with a comprehensive and updated examination of the land rights of indigenous and marginalised communities in Namibia. This grant could not have come at a more opportune moment. Firstly, 2018 marked the 21st birthday of the LAC’s Land, Environment and Development Project (LEAD). Since its inception, LEAD has supported the land and natural resource rights of Namibia’s indigenous and marginalised communities through legal advice and representation, research, advocacy, capacity building and litigation.

Thus, the LAC as a public interest law firm is well placed to evaluate the current state of Namibia’s indigenous and marginalised communities’ land rights. Secondly, the Second National Land Conference was scheduled to take place in 2018, hence the LAC’s intention was to produce a publication that would help to maintain the momentum generated by the conference discussions. Specific resolutions were taken at the end of the conference, to which policy makers are compelled to give effect. We are hopeful that this publication will be of use to those tasked with the implementation of the 2018 Land Conference resolutions.Northern and Southern Africa.
