Kenya, The Failed State

Lack of economic growth, Uneven development, high unemployment and archaic tribal politics sees Kenya ranked in the top 16 of the failed states index for a third year running.

To contextualize this, Kenya ranks lower than war-torn Sri Lanka, Burma, North Korea and Ethiopia. Many of these countries are characterized by military suppression, gross human rights violations and massive human flight.

Still, this represents a rise of 3 positions from 13 last year, attributed to the passage of a new constitution and a somewhat re-invigorated civic society.
