The RLS Fellowship and
Mentorship Programme is part of Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung’s special initiative
focusing on forced migration in East Africa, under the leadership of the East
Africa Regional Office (please visit www.rosalux.co.tz for more details about
the work of this office). The fellowship and mentorship programme is informed
especially by the findings of two studies commissioned by RLS. The first study
(in 2015) in Kenya focused on analysing climate change and its role as a
catalyst for conflicts and forced migration in the country. The study,
undertaken by the Institute of Climate Change and Adaptation (ICCA) of the
University of Nairobi (UON) was not conclusive on the matter, suggesting that
climate change was just one factor to conflicts and forced migrations in the
Kenya. It suggested that other key aspects of social life, economic and governance
issues contributed significantly to the protracted conflicts in the country.
ObjectivesFor 2017, 30 (13 female and 17 male) fellows are drawn from 23 target counties in the 8 regions (former provinces) of Kenya. The fellowship programme seeks to:
Identity further policy recommendations from youth leaders for sharing with relevant bodies, especially government authorities for integration and implementation.
The RLS Fellowship is a Mentorship and Capacity Building program that seeks to inspire leadership in Africa through transformational approaches, and enhance meaningful citizen participation in governance and conflict prevention & management.
The 2017 RLS Fellowship cohort focused on enhancing the capacity of youth leaders from Kenya through training and mentorship on transformational leadership as well as the prevention and management of conflicts in the country. This programme was supported by the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung East African Regional Office.
