Workshop and Special Issue on the 2013 Kenya Elections
Call for Papers

Following the success of the special issue of the Journal of Eastern African Studies on the 2007 Kenyan Elections – which came out just months after the start of the crisis and played an important role in shaping the way the election was understood – we are planning a follow-up special issue on the Kenyan elections of 2013.
Given the continuing controversy over the polls, and their relevance to Kenya’s future, we are hoping to submit the papers to JEAS in time to come out in the November 2013 issue. To meet this tight deadline, papers need to be submitted to us by 1 July 2013. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two blind reviewers, and the special issue is subject to the collection of papers meeting the approval of the JEAS editors.
Articles should be 8,000 words in length including footnotes, and conform to the JEAS style guide:
As the Special Issue will include an introduction that will provide an overview of the election, articles should focus on specific themes or areas of interest, for example:
- The role of international actors such as the donors and Kofi Annan.
- The campaign strategies of the parties.
- The politics of particular regions (the mismanagement of party primaries in Nyanza by ODM, the intense competition for votes in Western).
- The contest for new sub-national positions, most notably the Governor and Senate seats.
Ahead of the special issue we will host a workshop on the 2013 Kenyan elections in Nairobi on 3 & 4 June 2013 at which authors will have the opportunity to present their work and get feedback. The venue is TBC, but if you are interested in attending please contact us to be added to the mailing list. Please note that we do not have access to travel funds to cover the cost of getting to Nairobi.
If you have any questions or wish to submit a paper, please email (with ‘Kenya Special Issue in the subject line):
