    Abstract

    Marking the centenary of Roger Casement's humanitarian investigations in the Putumayo region of the Upper Amazon, this article suggests that he notr only recognized the abuses there as systemic but increasingly saw them as part of the wider features of exploitation which accompanied colonization and empire. His Putumayo work illustrated a long-term commitment on his part to what we would term today indigenous rights.
