CEMIRIDES WORK ON
Policy and legislative frameworks for MIPs
Further Article 91 (1) (e) provides that every political party shall respect the right of all persons to participate in the political process, including minorities and marginalised groups and through various other provisions, including Article 100, the Constitution provides for representation of marginalised communities in the various arms of government. The realisation of these provisions for marginalised communities in Kenya is greatly hinged on a properly developed and implemented policy framework.
CEMIRIDE has also litigated complex cases against the state including at the African Court and African Commission (see.
