BARRATT, Amanda  and  AFADAMEH-ADEYEMI, Ashimizo. Indigenous peoples and the right to culture: The potential significance for African indigenous communities of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights' General Comment 21. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp.560-587. ISSN 1996-2096.

Indigenous peoples in Africa currently experience a range of human rights abuses. Recently, the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights released General Comment 21 on the right to take part in cultural life (ICESCR article 15(1)(a)). This contribution examines the relevance of General Comment 21 and its interpretation of article 15(1)(a) for African indigenous groups.
