Peace Audit: Kenya

Summary:

This Peace Audit assesses the opportunities and challenges of building sustainable peace in Kenya. Peace Audit goes beyond just looking at the risks and drivers of conflict. It looks at the possibilities for peace as well – the strengths in a society that make it possible to forge a path to peace.

This Peace Audit therefore offers an insight into not only the challenges that communities face in Kenya, but also the opportunities that lie ahead. In doing so, we share some of the stories from those for whom peace and conflict is a day-to-day reality – from the population of the informal settlement of Kibera to the pastoralist villagers of Turkana, and the rose growers of Lake Naivasha to their Maasai neighbours.

We have produced a photostory that illustrates some of our findings, called 'Peace Blooms: Cattle, conflict and the roses of Lake Naivasha'.
