Amnesty International Kenya works on the principle of equal partnership: plans are developed and decisions are made based on mutual respect and agreement. Each plan and activity is planned, implemented, and reviewed through consultation.

At the same time, Amnesty International Kenya works actively with the police to provide information about human rights frameworks and practices.

Through its activities engaging with slum based networks, community based organizations, and the police, Amnesty International Kenya has created strong relationships that enable it to facilitate dialogues about police reform and to promote public participation in the police reform process.

Through the Education Empowerment & Justice Program,    Amnesty International Kenya has  facilitated dialogue forums with slum based networks from Kibera, Nairobi, and Mshomoroni, Mombasa, to discuss their knowledge about the ongoing police reform process, their perceptions about the process, and their willingness to participate in the process.
