Kenya: Impact of the ICC Proceedings
The number of people killed and displaced following the December 2007 elections in Kenya was unprecedented. To provide justice to the victims, combat pervasive political impunity and deter future violence, the International Criminal Court (ICC) brought two cases against six suspects who allegedly bore the greatest responsibility for the post-election violence. These cases have enormous political consequences for both the 2012 elections and the country’s stability.
