The 2016 annual conference on Democracy and Human Rights is organized by Civil society and Faith Based organizations in Kenya coordinated by Diakonia Sweden and Forum Syd with the support of the Embassy of Sweden in Nairobi. The organizations are implementing ongoing projects that aim at strengthening Democracy, Human Rights and Gender Equality in Kenya.
The theme for the 2016 conference is “Haki na uongozi bora, ni Wajibu Wetu!” The conference will provide an opportunity for stakeholders in Democracy, Governance and Human Rights to take stock of achievements, challenges and lessons learnt in the implementation of Kenya’s Constitution. Similar national conferences undertaken in the past include the annual devolution conferences among other meetings and workshops that have sought to strengthen the rolling out of devolution in the Country.
The conference will build upon these past deliberations by specifically providing the Civil Society slant on Democracy, governance, Human Rights and Gender Equality in Kenya.
