Kenya is often described as the ”cradle of humanity”, and it has long been known for its beautiful wildlife.

Recently, however, the image of Kenya has been somewhat tainted by reports of violence, whether domestic, such as after the elections in 2008, or foreign, as in the case of attacks by the Somali al-Shabaab.

This lecture aims to put things into perspective by analyzing the history of Kenya and its ethnically diverse population, as well as the more recent rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Eastern Africa.
