Somalis have lived in Kenya for generations, in many cases since long before the founding of the country. Despite their long residency, they are often perceived to be an alien presence in the country and a threat to security, especially following tragic events by Alshabaab in Kenya.
On 4 January 2018, the Rift Valley Forum will launch We Do Not Have Borders by Keren Weitzberg, which examines the historical factors that led to this state of affairs. The book also challenges many of the most fundamental analytical categories, such as “tribe,” “race,” and “nation,” that have traditionally shaped African historiography.
We Do Not Have Borders provides unique inroads into debates over globalization, African sovereignty, the resurgence of religion, and the multiple meanings of being African.
