Adivasi-Koordination in Deutschland e.V.
(Adivasi Coordination Group in Germany – registered society)
The adivasi were among the first to resist colonial exploitation under British rule. Today adivasi communities have to fight for their land and forest rights and their right to self-determination and equal treatment. In this struggle worldwide solidarity with adivasi in South Asia is the order of the day – the same way as with indigenous peoples in other parts of the world.
Within the framework of these aims Adivasi-Koordination seeks exchange and co-operation with adivasi organisations and their supporters in South Asia, with national and international organisations, with government and non-government institutions (NGOs) which are committed to the advancement of indigenous peoples and their self-determined development. Adivasi-Koordination co-operates with all democratic organisations, associations and initiatives worldwide.
In consultation and co-operation with suitable partners, Adivasi-Koordination focuses on the following activities:
- documentation and research (documentation in general; documentation of human rights violations in particular)
- public relations activities (publications, newsletters, media service, online information)
- talks, presentations
- support activities: campaigns, advocacy and lobbying, consulting, liaising between adivasi and German and European support groups, governments and international institutions
The basis of the work of Adivasi-Koordination is
- the expert knowledge and the existing compilation of information material of members/member organisations of Adivasi-Koordination
- contacts with persons, groups, scientific and non-scientific institutions in Germany and abroad
