In order to facilitate the implementation of Raoul Wallenberg Institute activities in East Africa, and Kenya in particular, as well as to strengthen partnerships in the region, the Institute established a field presence in Nairobi in 2002. The office in Nairobi currently manages the Institute’s cooperation programme in Kenya, as well as cooperation with the East African Court of Justice under the Institute’s regional programme in Sub-Saharan Africa. Backstopping and advisory support is provided from the Institute’s Head Office in Lund, Sweden.

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute presence in Nairobi makes it possible to keep up-to-date on developments in the human rights field and to ensure a more informed analysis of political, social and economic developments affecting the Institute’s work in sub-Saharan Africa. The proximity to partner institutions and other stakeholders in Kenya and the region enables continuous discussion and review of programme work, and increased flexibility in implementation of activities taking into account changing regional and local needs as well as developments on the ground.
