S2 E10: Public Participation in FTAs: The UK Kenya EPA

Continuing the series on the US – KE FTA, this episode brings you key insights on public participation in trade agreements put into context by the recent confusion surrounding the UK – Kenya EPA. What can be learnt from this? How can effective and meaningful public participation be carried out for FTAs? This episode answers these questions by highlighting the legal framework for public participation in Kenya, what happened with the UK – Kenya EPA, and what this may mean if the US – KE FTA negotiations result in an FTA.

Joined by Joanna Kahumbu and Peace Kioko, Dr. Melissa Omino hosts this episode and leaves us with a lot to think about on what meaningful public participation should look like.
