Title: Forgotten Territories, Unrealized Rights: Rural Afro-Ecuadorians and their Fight for Land, Equality, and Security
Author: Rapoport Delegation on Afro-Ecuadorian Land Rights
Abstract: The report first assesses the broad historical and social context of rural Afro-Ecuadorians. It then analyzes the international and domestic legal frameworks for addressing Afro-Ecuadorian rights, detailing the different visions and challenges facing Afro-Esmeraldeños and Afro-Choteños. Additionally, it evaluates the role of government agencies and international institutions as it relates to Afro-Ecuadorians’ struggle for recognition and rights. Finally, the report concludes by providing several recommendations for attending to the precarious economic and social positions of rural Afro-Ecuadorians and realizing their fundamental economic, social, political, and cultural rights.
