Peace and Stability in Kenya: The Role of Religious Actors
Various faith-inspired actors and institutions in Kenya work to foster peace and prevent violence across the country. Violent extremism in Kenya and the region, however, has unsettled inter-religious relations, exacerbating long-standing ethnic, political, and socio-economic divisions. This workshop gathered 60 faith-inspired and secular actors/organizations who are working for stability and social cohesion in Kenya. Participants explored the complexities of working with multiple religious traditions toward common goals, drawing both on Kenyan and international experience.
