Bordering Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia, Ethiopia and South Sudan, Kenya is in the north of the Great Lakes Region of Africa. Independent from the British since 1963, Kenya has struggled to maintain democracy, with periods of effective one party rule alternating with free and fair elections, leaving tensions that were highlighted by the violence after the 2007 vote. The abuses of this period have yet to be adequately addressed at a national level - a situation made even more difficult by the prevalence of restrictions, harassment and attacks against human rights defenders.
