his book is the product of a collaborative effort between theDe partment of Political Science and Public Ad m i n i s t r ati on , University of Nairobi and the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Kenya Office.The collaboration began in September 2002 following a request by theDepartment to the Foundation for support to hold a workshop on thePolitics of Transition in Kenya. Kenya was in the process of holding itsthird multi-party elections following the re-introduction of multi-party politics in 1991. The elections provided Kenyans with the first realopportunity to replace a serving president with a new one through theballot, because the then president had served his second and last five-yearterm in accordance with the constitution. The elections also providedprospects for Kenya National African Union (KANU), which had ruledthe country since independence in 1963 to relinquish power to the oppo-sition party, National Rainbow Coalition (NARC). Scholars of politicalscience at the University of Nairobi were eager to debate the challengesand prospects of this transition.In accepting to support the workshop, the Foundation also offered tosupport the publication of the proceedings of the workshop in a book-form to serve as a permanent record to the scholars’ academic contribu-tion to the understanding of transition politics. The actual research wasconducted by social scientists—mainly political scientists—from theDepartment of Political Science and Public Administration, University of Nairobi and two practitioners, one from the Electoral Commission of Kenya and the other from the Centre for Governance and Democracy, alocal NGO based in Nairobi.
