    Papua New Guinea

    Customary land is increasingly recognised as an important governance issue in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
    The aim of this paper is to identify challenges associated with land administration, land governance and land

    Mauritania, Senegal

    A local famer-herder conflict over grazing rights in the Mauritanian-Senegal border region has triggered a spiral of violence between Senegalese and Mauritanians in the southern Senegal River bank and different Mauritanian cities. This escalation has to be understood against the background of persistent racism and discrimination of the ‘black’ population of Mauritania.

    Afghanistan

They constitute, like many nomadic communities in other countries, a particularly disadvantaged group with respect to many social indicators such as access to education, health or livelihood standards.
