Kenya: Report says access to information necessary to ease tensions in extractive sector revenue management
"Sharing Stories, Developing a Joint Narrative: Report of a Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue on Security and Human Rights in Kenya's Extractive Sector"
This IHRB report records the insights and views shared at a ground-breaking multi-stakeholder dialogue in October 2014 organised in partnership with the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights and with the support of the British High Commission. Held as part of the Nairobi Process, the event brought together for the first time Kenyan representatives from national government, counties, parliament, companies, civil society, defence and security providers and regulatory bodies to discuss jointly the issues at stake, with lessons shared from elsewhere in Africa on relevant tools such as the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.
Analysing security and human rights in the context of the conflict and governance challenges facing Kenya, the report sets out possible next steps for continued stakeholder dialogue to promote positive changes in policy and practice in relation to the country’s extractives sector.
