This is the first in a series of ‘Peace Audits’, in which International Alert assesses the opportunities and challenges of building sustainable peace in Kenya. The Peace Audit goes beyond just looking at risks and drivers of conflict. It looks at the possibilities for peace as well – the strengths in a society that make it possible to find a path to peace. This report 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.
