KENYA ELECTION WATCH (KEW) PROJECT

The Kenya Election Watch Project provides non-partisan, fact-based, expert analysis of the 2017 General Elections in Kenya.

Previous elections in Kenya have historically been characterized by political violence.  The threat of violence has been associated with claims of intimidation, harassment, vote rigging, undue influence and manipulation.

Over the years, election-related violence has been heightened by wedge politics—strategies of political party that exploit the inter-ethnic grievances, cleavages— a culture disregarding established institutions of arbitrating election disputes at the Presidential level and preference for street protests.

Violence has tended to be intense during closely contested election results.

This is a project of the Africa Policy Institute (API) designed to:

  • Provide independent analysis and debate to inform policy;
  • Provide a resource to support important policies and issues.
  • Provide forum for policy debate on Kenyan politics and security during the elections.

Currently funded through private donations, the Kenya Election Watch Project (KEW) draws on the expertise from the University of Nairobi, Kenyatta University and API staff, Fellows and associates.
