Corruption, Human Rights and the Pursuit of Transitional Justice in Kenya
This book examines the impact that corruption has had on human rights and fundamental freedoms in Kenya, as well as the degree to which a rights-based approach can buttress the traditional criminal law response and strengthen other anti-corruption initiatives. It also discusses the extent to which accountability for corruption may be integrated into the transitional justice agenda, in order to prevent a recurrence of ethnic-fueled conflict, such as the post-election violence witnessed in the country in December 2007. In doing so, this book focuses on grand corruption as the most insidious and dangerous form of corruption, which involves the illicit use of power for private gain by high-ranking individuals who hold the public trust.
