An Empirical Analysis of Counter Terrorism Measures in Kenya in Response to Human Rights Violations

Abstract:

The study examines the effectiveness of counter-terrorism measures through a content analysis of Kenya, with examples from The United States and Israel. The analysis of existing literature has demonstrated that counter- terrorism measures do not always have the same effect and that they are independent of time. Just like external military interventions in a conflict will have the largest effect at the early stages of a conflict or once the belligerents have become war-weary, the same holds true for counter-terrorism. The study also examined how counter-terrorism measures affect civil liberties: furthermore, this study shall examine and analyze the proactive, reactive, systematic counterterrorism actions, challenges, and the lack of a clear effective counter-terrorism law in relation to human rights concerns. The study uses secondary data for analysis. The data was gathered from publications from journals, government records, non-profit organizations (NG0s) records, media articles and studies related to the current topic. The data obtained is analyzed using content analysis. The study concludes that experiences from Israel and the United States could contribute to the enhancement of counter-terrorism efforts in Kenya.
