Kenya – Internally Displaced Persons Bill must advance the right to access information, says ARTICLE 19

9 Jul

(ARTICLE 19/IFEX) – Nairobi, 5 July 2012 – Today, ARTICLE 19 releases its legal analysis of the Internally Displaced Persons Bill for Kenya (“the Draft Bill”), welcoming the initiative to institutionalise protection and assistance for internally displaced persons (IDPs). The Draft Bill contains robust provisions to increase information flows to and from IDPs, but the effectiveness of protection and assistance to IDPs will depend on stronger safeguards for information rights, greater participation of IDPs in decision-making, and enhancing transparency.
