Katiba Institute

The Katiba Institute (KI), Located in Nairobi, was established in 2011 to promote knowledge and studies of constitutionalism and to facilitate the implementation of Kenya’s new constitution. The principal objective of KI is to achieve social transformation through the constitution. In the immediate, KI works to help promote the implementation of the constitution. In the medium term, KI hopes that its work will help establish a culture of constitutionalism. In this regard, KI works on diverse areas of the constitution including issues of leadership and integrity, human rights, devolution, gender and electoral issues to appropriation of land and evictions of indigenous people and other long term settlers and protection against illegality and harassment by the police, facilitating public participation. Its activities include publications on the Constitution, workshops on constitutional issues, public interest litigation, development of the legal and judicial system, establishment of county governments, land reform, review of legislative bills to implement the Constitution, and promoting the participation of Kenyans in public affairs.
