THE ROLE OF CIVIC EDUCATION IN SHAPING VOTING BEHAVIOUR IN THE KENYAN 2013 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

1.1 Background of the Study

During a single decade, beginning in the late 1980s, initiatives towards democratic reform took place across the world. New constitutional regimes came into being. In countries that were establishing or re-establishing democracies after a period of non-democratic rule, the general public as well as leaders realized that major changes in formal and informal civic education were required to prepare citizens for this social, political and economic order. What those changes should be and how they should be initiated was not clear, however. .

THE IMPACT OF REFUGEES ON KENYA'S ECONOMIC SECURITY

This study set out to determine the impact of refugees on Kenya's economic security. The hypothesis of the study posited that the influx of refugees in Kenya  impacts negatively on Kenya's economic security. The study was informed by the theory of structuration. The data that was used in the study was secondary in nature and was collected from books, journals, the internet, published and unpublished works and the newspapers. According to the findings of the study, the rapid increase in the number of refugees in Kenya has minimal effect on the country's economic security.
