The case under consideration is African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights v Kenya Application 6/2012 (Ogiek case), in which the Court on 23 June 2022 delivered its reparation orders following an initial finding of violations of the rights of the Ogiek community by the Court. Even though the focus of the discussion is on the reparation orders of the Court, the discussion will also engage with relevant aspects of the merit decisions issued by the African Court on the Ogiek case delivered on 26 May 2017.

The discussion will feature representatives from the African Court’s Registry, and from the parties to the case.
