No redress: Somalia's forgotten minorities

This report documents the neglected situation of Somalia's minorities. It aims to raise awareness of the continuing severe violations of their human rights, so that they can move from exclusion and poverty towards a future of dignity, equal opportunities and non-discrimination alongside their fellow citizens.
The report examines the current situation in three regions of Somalia - Somaliland, Puntland and south-central Somalia - where differing political climates have left minorities in a state of desperation. Minority Rights Group International emphasizes, among other recommendations, that the future new Constitution of Somalia must recognize the country's minorities and guarantee their right to non-discrimination; that the participation of minorities in public life should be promoted; and that special measures should be implemented to protect and promote the rights of women from minority communities.
