Workshop on Global Development and Religion in Kenya
Religion has special importance in Kenya, not only in the private lives of Kenyans, but also at the broader cultural and societal levels. A large number of faith-inspired organizations, with projects spanning many development sectors, are also active in Kenya. Despite these dynamics, the role of religion in development and peacebuilding is understudied and underappreciated by many international development partners. This workshop brought together a select group of scholars and practitioners to discuss the intersection of religion and development in Kenya. The goal of this workshop was to generate ideas for research on development topics such as education, health, refugees, and peace and violence prevention. This was a closed event with attendance by invitation only.
