Joel Barkan and Kenya

  • David W. Throup
Abstract:

Joel Barkan’s interest in Kenya as a high school student inspired a lifetime’s commitment to the country and wider East African region, reflected in his three edited volumes comparing political, economic, and policy developments in Kenya and Tanzania, his work as USAID’s Regional Democracy and Governance Advisor in the early 1990s, and his continuing engagement with the country’s political development through his work at CSIS and his role as founder and chair of the Kenya Working Group, the Washington, D.C.–based lobbying group.

L’intérêt de Joel Barkan au Kenya est venu au lycée et a inspiré un engagement a vie pour le pays et l’ensemble de la région d’Afrique de l’est. La passion de Barkan pour ce pays est visible dans ses trois volumes édités qui comparent les politiques, les économies et les développements politiques au Kenya et en Tanzanie. Barkan a aussi travaillé en tant qu’USAID démocratique et conseiller en gouvernance dans les années 1990 et a eu un engagement continu avec le développement politique du pays par le biais de son travail au CSIS et son rôle en tant que fondateur et président du groupe de travail du Kenya, le groupe de pression basée à Washington, D.C.
