Seminar: Mungiki Workshop, Jul. 9 2012 @ BIEA


Venue: British Institute in Eastern Africa
Location: Laikipia Road, Kileleshwa
Time: 8.30am – 12.15pm
Entry: RSVP with seminars@biea.ac.uk

SYNOPSIS
Even after disbanding itself in 2010, the proscribed Mungiki group seemingly remains an important factor in Kenyan society and politics. With regular appearances in the media, with the ICC trials going ahead and the Kenyan elections close on the horizon, this half-day workshop interrogates the role which the Mungiki plays in contemporary Kenya. Building on earlier and on-going research, the workshop assembles prominent Kenyan and international researchers who work on various aspects of the Mungiki.

The workshop is jointly convened by
The British Institute in Eastern Africa, Nairobi
Mutuma Rutere (The Centre for Human Rights and Policy Studies, Nairobi) and
André Sonnichsen (The Centre of African Studies, University of Copenhagen)
