This was a commissioned response to a lecture given by Richard Leakey at the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, in spring 2005, as part of the annual Oxford Amnesty Series of lectures which were that year focused on land rights. It questions some of his underlying assumptions, and challenges his take on indigenous peoples' rights to land and resources, while also partly agreeing with him. It describes some recent developments in Kenya, around the hotly contested issue of land, in order to contextualise Dr Leakey's remarks.
