The DTP has fifteen 3. The implications of camera trap technology for people's privacy and well-being need to be more widely and openly discussed, and good practice shared. Conservation projects need to make sure they have proper protocols in place to minimise social impacts and stop useful wildlife research tools from damaging both the short and long-term success of wildlife conservation projects. On Thursday 22 November this will be followed by a one-day workshop on Urban Ecologies:
And the political turmoil of recent decades in Somalia has turned it into a valuable historical document, a record of a way of life that for thousands of Bajuni has been shattered by persecution and conflict.
From fishermen had their fishing gear and boats confiscated and were compelled to join government cooperatives, while some were force to move off the Bajuni islands Abby But matters went from bad to worse following the outbreak of the Somali civil war and the overthrow of Siad Barre in January Bajuni joined the general exodus of victimised groups from Somalia, and many of them fled to UNHCR refugee camps in and around Mombasa, where the Kwa Jomvu camp became their main home until it was finally closed down in At the time I was living in Mombasa, and remember the influx of refugees — most noticeably those who were installed in St.
The linguist Derek Nurse was planning a visit to East Africa, and I suggested this possibility to him in a letter written in May But his primary target then in Kenya was the little-known Sabaki language Ilwana: Nurse and Hinnebusch Conducting linguistic research with Swahili-speaking refugees in Kenya might have been tricky in those early days, politically and research-permission-wise at least.
The subsequent emigration of large numbers of Bajuni and others to Europe and North America has perhaps made it easier, though a generation has now grown up in a very different linguistic and cultural environment from that of their original homeland.
Since Derek Nurse has engaged with numerous cases of refugees claiming to Bajuni from Somalia, and this work has seen him return to research that he began in northern Kenya in Nurse The academic fruits of this are now online in his Bajuni Database. The overview — part of which is a gazetteer of Bajuni villages down to the Kenya border — is of particular interest.
Very few Bajuni remain in Somalia, and their world is clearly not what it was in the days before the dictatorship of Siad Barre and the Somali Civil War. It is also important for the Bajuni diaspora, and a poignant reminder of the widespread suffering that the Somali conflict has caused.
