Safeguarding Democratic Space in Kenya

Speeches Shim

The Safeguarding Democratic Space in Kenya (SADES-K) activity partners with government institutions, civil society organizations (CSOs), and the media to strengthen the country’s governance reform agenda and secure democratic gains enshrined in the 2010 Constitution. SADES-K has three main objectives: strengthen social and ethnic cohesion; protect civic and democratic space; and conduct regular monitoring of the Building Bridges to Unity Initiative’s (BBI) national dialogue implementation process and outcomes. In addition, the activity facilitates data collection and tracking of citizen’s views through public polling. The findings inform decisions on subsequent activities undertaken by the BBI and assists citizens and civil society in defining their engagement with government-led, cohesion, and reform initiatives.
