Prospects for Violence in Kenya's 2017 Elections

The Institute for Defense Analyses published on 18 May 2017 a commentary titled "Prospects for Violence in Kenya's 2017 Elections" by Alexander Noyes.

The disorderly nature and violence in both major parties' primary contests have led many to worry about renewed violence in the August elections. A recent poll found that 60 percent of Kenyans' single biggest worry for 2017 is election-related violence. While local level violence in Kenya's 2017 elections appears likely, a conflagration on the scale of 2007-2008 may turn out to be less of a risk.
