Briefs and Policy Reviews

Overview

Criminal activity including terrorism and VE in Kenya is as a result of disruptions to the system either from within or from outside the system. However, despite all this, often when terrorism is analysed or when decisions about actual or potential conflict are made, the kind of reasoning that is followed is simplistic, linear. It results in disregard for complexity and limits the opportunities for systemic thinking.
