Only 15 years ago, Namibia gained her independence. Since then, the implementation of human rights (including social rights) as enshrined in the new Constitution was one of the main preoccupations of government as well as of non-governmental organisations like the LAC. This lecture will cover the achievements and shortcomings of Namibia's human rights system. On the one hand, the present political situation offers new opportunities to the socio-economic situation of Namibians. On the other hand, challenges like the HIV/Aids pandemic or land reform have to be met.
Norman Tjombe is the Director of the Legal Assistance Centre in Windhoek which has been established by progressive lawyers in the last years of South African occupation and is co-sponsored by horizont3000 via funds from the Austrian Development Cooperation and the Dreikönigsaktion.
