Kenya Case Study: Investigating Potential for Kenya-China-UK Trilateral Cooperation: From Rhetoric to Practice in Development Cooperation

Published on 20 March 2020

This document reports on a secondary research case study investigating potential avenues for trilateral cooperation between Kenya, China and the UK. The paper examines Kenya as a case to analyse how partnerships with the UK and China can support or limit Kenya’s development vision. We explore how these development partnerships can contribute to mutual economic benefits and inclusive economic growth. To do so, the UK’s and China’s aid and investment strategies in Africa and Kenya will be examined. Finally, it will provide policy recommendations for improved bilateral and trilateral cooperation.
