Strengthening the Human Rights Orientation of the Smallholder Irrigation Programme Mount Kenya Region

This report summarizes the outcomes of an advisory mission to the German-Kenyan Smallholder Irrigation Programme, implemented by GTZ. The report argues that the programme so far has focused strongly on the economics of smallholder irrigation, and not included poor peasants or those with negligible assets. Taking Kenyan human rights obligations into account, the author recommends to adjust the aims and indicators of the programme, in order to have positive impacts for hitherto excluded rights-bearers.

Jahresbericht/Annual Report 2005

In 2005 the Institute continued its campaign for a German signature and ratification of the Option Protocol to the UN Convention against Torture and Other Forms of Cruel, Inhumane and Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The Institute held a conference and conducted numerous talks, on the federal as well as the individual states level, in order to promote this prevention oriented human rights instrument. The Institute also participated in the discussion on German anti-discrimination legislation triggered by the public presentation of a draft law in December 2004. In the face of an emotional and partly polemical public debate, the Institute emphasized the daily reality of discrimination in Germany and pointed out that human rights obligations cover combating discrimination by private actors, too.
