Securing Kenya’s Constitutional Development

While the new Constitution of Kenya, 2010 provides for the right of every Kenyan to access justice, its implementation is vital to strengthen and support the changes required for a better Kenya. IDLO is supporting the Kenyan Government to implement the Constitution in an effective, efficient and sustainable manner, in accordance with international standards and best practices. This is being done with a view to enhancing access to justice for Kenyans, especially for women, children and other vulnerable populations.

IDLO’s technical support has enabled the enactment of over 40 pieces of legislation since 2010 towards giving effect to the letter and spirit of the Constitution. IDLO has supported various interventions and tools aimed at creating awareness of constitutional implementation. In order to ensure the active participation of civil society in the process, IDLO has engaged with academia, various professional bodies in policy and legislative processes, and other civil society organizations for their contributions.
