- Why Were Kenya’s 2013 Elections Peaceful?
10:00 am-11:30am ET
To understand why and how Kenya avoided electoral violence, it is necessary to understand the underlying conditions and triggers that set off the violence five years ago, why the circumstances were different in 2013, and the impact of interventions designed to prevent new violence. Please join the U.S. Institute of Peace on May 21, 2013 for a discussion of these issues and the lessons from Kenya’s peaceful elections that may be more broadly applicable.
- Nigerian Dilemmas
USIP recently published two Special Reports, one, entitled "What’s Next for Security in the Niger Delta" by Aaron Sayne, focused on the unfolding situation in the Niger Delta, and Midterm Challenges in Nigeria by John Paden on the run up the elections and the need to avoid conflict. A public workshop will feature the authors of these two reports along with an expert commentator.
