Mwambi Mwasaru

Mwasaru chairs the Board of the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) and directs the Kwale Rural Support Program. While at Harvard, Mwasaru plans to explore theoretical perspectives and paradigms that inform different approaches to human rights, with particular regard to how human rights can serve in social transformation. He will be using Kenya as a case study to explore the role of human rights in the social reforms currently taking place in Kenya. One of his goals is to design human rights programs that can influence the on-going social reform movement.
