Kenya’s Parliament recently passed a new draft Constitution. (Hat tip, Jurist and the Comparative Constitutions blog which has been commenting about the progress of the constitution in Parliament for the past week.)
This development comes on the heels of judges at the International Criminal Court approving an investigation into the violence that erupted following Kenya’s 2007 election, with trials expected to start in 2012. (See our International Courts and Tribunals research guide for more information about researching international courts and tribunals.)
The New York Times also has a good article discussing these recent events in Kenya.
