About

The elasticity of democracy in mosaic societies is one of the research streams under the Eastern Africa Resilience Hub. It seeks to enhance the conversation on democracy as it pertains to the African context. The Hub is hosting a two-day seminar that will examine various themes on democracy on the continent including; Democracy & Conflict, Origins of democracy and the Realities and Practice of democracy in the region. Eight country experts will be a part of this seminar, as well as our development partner IDRC (Governance & Justice Program) and key moderators. Which shall then harness the development of a body of literature that gives a nuanced overview of some of the democratic experiments in the region. The eight countries to be profiled are:

  1. Kenya
  2. Uganda
  3. Zambia
  4. DRC
  5. Rwanda
  6. Burundi
  7. Somalia
  8. South Sudan
