Witchcraft allegations, refugee protection and human rights: a review of the evidence
New Issues in Refugee Research - Research Paper No. 169
From introduction: "Some of the numerous explanations for witchcraft accusations will be introduced, before turning to the ways in which witchcraft accusations are a protection concern. Documented examples of persecution aimed at alleged witches in various countries will be provided before turning to particular risk groups: women, the elderly and children. Additionally, albinos in East Africa face persecution not because of alleged witchcraft activity, but because they are being killed for their body parts, which are thought to bring good luck. The connection between HIV/AIDS and witchcraft will then be addressed briefly."

Witchcraft and British Colonial Law
Witchcraft was not appropriately handled by colonial powers who often understimated its influence. Where there were laws agains it, these laws were inadquate as they were made outside of the input of indigenous persons.  Any law that will try to combat the phenonmenon of witchcraft must be conjured with the input of those that practice it.
