In June 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya, the Open Society Justice Initiative convened a two-day consultation of 40 stakeholders to reflect on the impacts of strategic litigation on indigenous peoples’ enjoyment of their land rights. The comparative inquiry drew on the experience of three focus countries: Kenya, Malaysia and Paraguay as well as regional judgments.

The meeting was held within the framework of a multi-year inquiry to sharpen shared understandings of the achievements, limitations, risks, and ultimate impacts of strategic litigation around the world. Members of six different indigenous communities together with their attorneys, land rights activists, a government official, scholars and others interrogated the impacts of this critical legal advocacy tool. This document summarizes the discusisons.
