Event Summary: Peace and Stability in Kenya
August 22, 2015
A wide range of faith actors and institutions in Kenya have long worked to foster peace and curtail or prevent different threats and forms of violence. World Faiths Development Dialogue (WFDD) research on faith-based peace efforts in Kenya focuses specifically on interfaith organizations or collaboration. Responding to suggestions during interviews with practitioners and faith leaders, WFDD hosted a workshop on August 4, 2015 at Hekima Institute for Peace Studies and International Relations in Nairobi titled "Peace and Stability in Kenya: The Role of Religious Actors." The day-long event gathered faith-inspired and secular actors/organizations that are actively working for stability and social cohesion in Kenya. This document provides an event summary.
