From the Nakuru County Peace accord (2010-2012) to Lasting Peace

"The case study examines the post-election violence of 2007-2008 within a wider historical context of ethnic-based conflict. It reveals the critical role of four groups – male Elders from the Gikuyu and the Kalenjin communities, the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) working with the National Steering Committee on Conflict Management and Peace Building (NSC), and the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (the HD Centre) – who collaborated for a period of 16 months between 2010 and 2012. The case study concludes with some lessons drawn from the process, including the challenge of securing peace and justice, as well as recommendations for ensuring the durability of the Peace Accord."
