Kenya

The Advocates for Human Rights worked with the Kenyan non-governmental organization Cemiride to develop and present recommendations to the Kenya Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC). The recommendatoins focused on incorporating minority and indigenous rights into the Kenyan transitional justice process. The Advocates and Cemiride developed Engaging Minorities and Indigenous Communities in the Kenya TRC: Recommendations and Comparative Practices Briefing Note 2010 with recommendations on how the TJRC could ensure that Kenya’s many minority and indigenous peoples—such as the Maasai, the Nubians, the Ogiek, the Endorois and many other groups—could actively participate in the truth commission process in Kenya.
