Kenya is in the middle of a major political, social, and economic crisis. The purpose of this inaugural Kenya Scholars & Studies Association (KESSA) Conference is to examine the genesis of this and other Kenyan political, social, economic and environmental challenges from a variety of disciplinary/interdisciplinary perspectives, with the hope of contributing to the resolution of these issues. Thus papers that advance solutions to immediate and long term political, social, economic, educational, scientific and environmental challenges are especially encouraged.

Papers can focus on various aspects of Kenya’s Political Economy, Elections, Constitution, Culture, Government, Development, Technological Landscape, Gender, Environment, Social make-up, Politics and Geopolitics, Infrastructure, Economy, Security, Poverty, Health and Disease, Food security, Urbanization, Education and Scientific challenges.
