It provides evidence-based research and analysis on human rights in Kenya, advocates for the full realization of those rights and works with communitybased networks across the country to help them organize and mobilize for the attainment of these rights. Kenya is seven years past the Kenya National Dialogue and Reconciliation—which provided Kenya with a blueprint for addressing our past so as to move to our future. Kenya is five years past the promulgation of the 2010 Constitution— which provided us with the structural foundations required to consolidate our democracy, achieve justice for individuals and groups hurt by the state and nonstate actors since our independence, move towards more inclusive participation and more equal enjoyment of development outcomes. But the promise of the KNDR and the Constitution is waning. This position is intended for candidates keen and committed to turn the tide.
