The 2007 Electoral Crisis in Kenya: Ethnography of an International Response
From Jeff Layne
Ph.D. Candidate in Anthropology,
Universite Laval, Quebec, Canada
Ms. Belanger-Vincent’s paper draws largely from ethnographic research on the notion of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) that is slowly becoming the new intervention doctrine in international circles. The main objective is to show why and how the 2007 and 2008 Kenyan crisis is important vis-a-vis R2P and its implementation as a norm of action within the practice of international politics.
