Political scientists and an economist at the University of California, Berkeley, will provide insights and perspectives on Kenya's presidential election, its violent aftermath and the potential for peace.
The event is hosted by UC Berkeley's Center for African Studies. Since the disputed Dec. 27 re-election of Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, clashes led by rival political factions have caused the deaths of more than 750 people. More than a quarter of a million Kenyans have been forced from their homes.
