Reuters: Democracy in Africa, an important dialogue for all citizens




Post-election violent conflict along ethnic lines is the greatest threat to Africa's stability and consolidation of democratic institutions and culture.  It is with this in mind that on Wednesday, 14th December 2016, an important gathering – known as Maendeleo Policy Forum will take place in Nairobi.
A brainchild of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Maendeleo Policy Forum was launched in 2015 to provide space for African leaders, international mediators and negotiators, researchers, policy makers, development practitioners and writers on African issues, to debate on critical issues of development in Africa.
This particular edition being launched by UNDP in partnership with the Africa Policy Institute is designed to collate lessons and good practices in election management from past polls in Africa to inform democratic consolidation in countries like Kenya.  
My take:
