Title:
Celebrating San victory too soon? Reflections on the outcome of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve Court Case

Abstract:
The longest and most expensive court case in Botswana's history came to a surprising end on 13 December 2006, with 189 San Bushmen winning the right to return to their ancestral land in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR). The 130 days in court and the resulting 19,000 pages of transcript are part of much wider debates about the position of indigenous people in southern Africa, their identity, poverty and cultural heritage, and what is genuinely in the much-romanticised San's best interests.
