RRP: Open Access
This comprehensive book presents the findings of a year-long study conducted by Kabarak University Law School and Heinrich Boll Stiftung, Nairobi Office, examining the impact of the first decade of devolution on the inclusion of marginalised groups in Kenyan governance structures. Exploring the interplay between decentralisation and inclusion, the volume highlights the historical struggles and shifts in power dynamics. With insights derived from rigorous analysis and scholarly contributions, this edited collection critically evaluates whether devolution has fulfilled its promise of democratisation and inclusion. Essential for scholars, policymakers, and practitioners, this book contributes to the discourse on transformative governance, offering reflections on the challenges and prospects of achieving genuine decentralisation and inclusive governance in Kenya and beyond.
