REFLECTIONS ON
THE CREATIVE ECONOMY

Creativity helps us understand, celebrate and express the human condition. It is good in and of itself. And yet, how does the cultural sector begin to moderate its own socio-economic potential on the national platform?

BOOK OF THE MONTH

Kenya's 2013 General elections
STAKES, PRACTICES AND OUTCOMES

When voters enthusiastically turn up to cast their vote during general elections, they expect that their action would meaningfully change their lives. But in most of Africa, even when elections are held on a regular basis, voters are quite often disappointed by the performance of their leaders who use the new positions as an opportunity to loot public resources and consolidate power. It is almost as if elections are of minimal value to the populace.

Notwithstanding this trend, when they are free and fair, general elections can be transformative. They can bring into the political arena men and women of integrity committed to service and accountability. Inspired by the determination to have inclusive governance and the advancement of democracy, Kenya’s 2013 General Election: Stakes, Practices and Outcomes asks important questions related to political participation, coalition building, politics of identity, the international criminal court, electoral systems and institutions, and the judiciary.
