The coming into effect of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 is only a beginning of the process of change that Kenyans voted for. Real and
meaningful change will happen only when the letter and spirit of the Constitution is effected. In this occasional report, the Commission seeks to provide policy makers and policy implementers with practical ideas on how to utilise the Bill of Rights while undertaking their executive, legislative or judicial functions under the Constitution.
The report has been compiled following a study of the conceptual and practical uses of Bills of Rights around the world. Specific themes in Kenya’s Bill of Rights have been reviewed alongside comparable experiences from other jurisdictions.


pdf iconOBJECTS OF PITY OR INDIVIDUALS WITH RIGHTS: THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

This report is prepared with the core aim of advising the Government, including the President and Legislature, on policy, legislative and administrative reforms needed to enhance the right to education for persons with disabilities. This study was undertaken following complaints brought to the Commission alleging violation of the right to education of children with disabilities.
These allegations presented themselves in terms of denial of admission or expulsion from regular schools on the basis of disability as well as the failure of the Government to fund some special schools. After undertaking initial investigations into the complaints, the National Commission decided to undertake wider research in order to establish the systemic nature of the problems confronting education for children with disabilities.
