Katiba Institute (KI) is a research and litigation institution established in 2011 with the mission
of supporting the implementation of Kenya’s 2010 Constitution, resisting efforts to undermine
that Constitution, and assisting in developing a culture of constitutionalism in Kenya. It undertakes constitutional research, comments on policy and laws from a constitutional perspective, and publishes books and other material on the Constitution. Much of its work involves litigation to enforce constitutional rights and ensure the proper performance of constitutional duties and responsibilities. KI also fosters the spirit of constitutionalism in the East African region by promoting the exchange of academic discourse on constitutional issues and working with like-minded organizations to secure greater freedoms in the East African Region.
KI is registered as a company limited by guarantee, is headed by an Executive Director, and has a distinguished Board. It operates under three departments: the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) Unit, Research and Publication with Civic Education and Capacity Building, and Finance and Operations. Staff in the various departments do not work in silos but operate in a consultative and cooperative manner.
