The Status of Governance in Kenya: A Baseline Survey Report 2012

This report presents the major findings of the national baseline survey on the status of governance in Kenya that was undertaken between April and May 2012. 5,035 respondents from 46 counties responded to the main issues affecting citizen’s awareness, knowledge and practices relating to their civic and constitutional rights and their participation in the democratic process.

Further to this report, two more in-depth studies have been carried out. These two studies were based on the findings in the baseline report on the Status of Governance in Kenya report of 2012. The study on Citizenship, Identities and Belonging provides an analysis of the disputes that have arisen in Kenya in the wake of the reintroduction of multiparty system. The report on the Status of Kenyan’s Access to Justice, Justiciable rights and Public Participation in Kenya’s Judicial System details findings that support the adoption of a broader concept of access to justice by both state and non-state actors. Major institutional prerequisites to this shift include a robust legislative and policy framework on access to justice, institutional human resource and infrastructural enhancement and knowledge and awareness creation..
