Kenya's 2013 General Election -Stakes, Practices and Outcomes

Kenya’s 2013 General Election -Stakes, Practices and Outcomes

Date: January 21, 2016
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium

The papers in the book are written by mainly Kenyan academics and civil society actors who examine the drivers of the 2013 general elections and the sources of the mandate to lead.

Inspired by the determination to have inclusive governance and the advancement of democracy in Kenya, the book asks important questions related to, among others, political participation, identity, electoral institutions and the judiciary. Although past elections have hardly transformed the lives of the majority of the people notwithstanding the promises made by leaders, they are embraced enthusiastically by voters. They are worth of intense reflection, as the book shows.
