Kenya . In particular, the article analyses the extent to which the Commission has given a new and more “African” life to indigenous peoples’ human rights in the continent. While engaging in a juridical exposition of various rights germane to indigenous groups within the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, the article places this discourse in the context of globalisa- tion whose (re)shaping of the state power has placed non-state corporations at the centre of devel- opment intervention with deleterious eﬀ ects on insular groups.
