Event: Oxford Peace Talks
Location: The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, Mansfield College
“How can Africa lead for peace? Things are changed; Africa is adopting homegrown solutions to address conflicts. In 2007, the post-election conflicts in Kenya spread across the country. Despite of the fact that the immediate issue was power sharing, we needed to look at the underlying issues of the violence. The mediation process gave path to local institutions that would later address root causes of the post-election violence.”
Assistant Director of the Research, Policy and Planning Department of Kenya’s National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC), Sellah King’oro, shares her story of how the mediation process in Kenya opened path to local institutions. Also, she emphasizes the power of civic space, minorities and being sensitive to inequalities.
