The launch will take place at 7:30 AM, on the 12th of the June at the Serena hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. The event will present the major findings of the report, stimulate debate concerning if and how the business sector should engage in peace building, and take questions from the audience.

This latest research by One Earth Future shows that the Kenyan business community played an essential part in facilitating peaceful elections in 2013, offering a blueprint for preventing future electoral violence.
 
In attendance will be members from the private sector led by the KEPSA Chair Mr. Vimal Shah, representatives from the Civil Society, Religious Groups, among others.
