Abstract

This study assesses the impact of donor political conditionality on democratization in Kenya. Specifically, it examines the extent to which President Moi's regime has instituted democratic institutions as a result of political conditionality imposed by the donors since 1991. The study is divided into two broad parts. Part one puts into proper conceptual framework the meaning of political conditionality. It analyses what constitutes political conditionality as an emerging international regime. Part two operationalizes the regime of political conditionality in relation to Kenya, particularly with respect to systemic changes of luck thereof.
