Abstract:
This paper argues that conflicts affecting Africa have particularly impacted Indigenous Peoples in three major ways. Firstly, there are African Indigenous communities caught up in conflicts between major groups. Secondly, there are African Indigenous Peoples whose lands and territories are militarized for various reasons and that are, to a certain extent, forced to join armed conflicts. Thirdly, there are African Indigenous Peoples involved in land-related disputes resulting in open or latent conflicts, including with states and with private businesses.
