 The Abyei Administrative Area (AAA) is a contested zone located on the central border between South Sudan and Sudan. Its status has remained unresolved since South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011, and the governments failed to agree on the border division. A United Nations peacekeeping mission, the United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA), has since monitored the situation. It is entrusted with overseeing demilitarisation and maintaining security in the area.

A demarcação de terras indígenas foi regularizada na constituição de 1988, quando foi estabelecido que os direitos dos índios sobre as terras tradicionalmente ocupadas por eles são de natureza originária e que os indígenas têm a posse das terras que são bens da União.

Segundo a Fundação Nacional do Índio (Funai), há cerca de 300 povos indígenas e 462 Terras Indígenas regularizadas no Brasil, o que corresponde a 12,2% do território nacional.
