Goethe Institut
Discussion: Civil Society Dialogues

The Goethe-Institut Kenya, in cooperation with Twaweza Communications, is presenting a series of panel discussions on policy issues that should be more in the public eye, while at the same time offering a comparative perspective, inviting panelists from Germany as well as Kenya. The Civil Society Dialogues will shed light on topics of interest that are at the core of the political debate in a working democracy and see how they are dealt with in both countries.
Our session on 26th of September will focus on youth, aging and following implications for the political field. How is the aging population in Germany as opposed to the growing young population in Kenya? What problems arise? What are the impacts on society?

Crime Hunters
by Juan Jose Lozano and Nicholas Wadimoff, 2014, 52’
From their headquarters in Geneva, the lawyers from TRIAL (Track Impunity Always) tirelessly track down war criminals who set foot in Switzerland. Any person implicated in these conflicts will end up on the radar of these attorneys, genuine crime-hunters of modern times. The film tells their daily struggle in fighting injustice and impunity, raising the question of whether international justice can make a difference when some victims seem to be worth more than others.

Dance Of The jacaranda By Peter Kimani

Peter Kimani is an award-winning Kenyan author and journalist. He works across a broad spectrum of genres, from fiction to non-fiction, poetry and plays. His latest novel, Dance of the Jakaranda, was published in New York in February 2017, to great critical acclaim.
The book is a historical novel that re-imagines the rise and fall of colonialism in Kenya at the turn of the last century; it could well be a story of globalization—not just for its riveting multiracial, multicultural cast—but also due to its diverse literary allusions, from Chekhovian comedy to Kafkasque caricatures, or magical realism popularised by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
The novel is firmly anchored in the African oral storytelling tradition, drawing from the tap root of the cultures that inform the story.
The audiobook is narrated by renowned Kenyan broadcaster John Sibi-Okumu.
