Kenya has held two general elections (in 1992 and 1997) since the reintroduction of multiparty politics. The ruling party (KANU) and President Moi won both elections. In the run up to the 2002 elections the country is in the process of a comprehensive review of its constitution. The 2002 elections have been earmarked as crucial in the countrys progress on the path to democracy. The ELKEN project will analyse the countrys overall political development including the presidential succession battle, electoral violence (if any), local politics and a review of the constitution. In addition, attention will be paid to the election observation exercise conducted by the international community.

Access to land for a large group of Africans is still a key determinant for making a living. Land is becoming scarce under the combined pressure of rapid population growth, increased commercialization of agricultural activities, and individualization of tenure. The results are a further stratification of the population and increased food insecurity for the vulnerable sections of the rural population. This study addresses the process and consequences of the individualization of land ownership as it developed in the Maasai area in southern Kenya during the 20th century. In the 1986-90 period many Maasai sold parts of their individual ranches, mostly to outsiders, and the remittances were in many instances turned into consumptive use. A current update of the research is trying to establish whether this process of land sale has continued and how it has affected the sellers livelihoods. Data have been gathered and will be analysed in the years to come.

This project focuses on ethno-regional conflict in Cameroon, with particular reference to the so-called Anglophone problem. It analyses the construction of an Anglophone identity, consciousness and organization within the Francophone-dominated state. It also documents current Anglophone struggles for a return to federalism or for outright secession. An attempt will be made to compare the situation in Cameroon with other relevant African countries.
