The Handbook of Reconciliation in Kenya
In early 2012, the Kenya National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC), the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) and the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) institutions launched a project entitled: Promoting National Cohesion and Reconciliation in Kenya. The project was based on the shared capacities and experiences of these organisations and sought to build capacity in addressing reconciliation-related issues among key stakeholders at all levels across Kenya.
Drawing on our shared institutional knowledge and experience, and as part of its lasting contribution to capacity-building and skills transfer, the project has developed this Handbook on Reconciliation in Kenya. The objective of the Handbook is to equip individuals and communities to engage in reconciliation dialogues across Kenya. A broad range of skilled Kenyan peacebuilders, from the civil society and government sectors, also contributed towards framing the content of this Handbook. It is our hope and ambition that, by sharing our experiences in this Handbook, institutions and practitioners will obtain useful advice on how to contribute to and drive reconciliation processes across Kenya.
