Kenya Diaspora Survey


You are invited to participate in an online survey about the political engagement of diaspora Kenyans. Participation in the study typically takes about 20 minutes and is strictly confidential. The survey collects several types of information: basic demographic data; information about which media sources you consult; your logistical preferences for diaspora voting; factors you are likely to consider when voting; and perspectives on Kenyan politics.. Through this research, we hope to gain a better understanding of how the voting rights of diaspora Kenyans can best be implemented.

Participants who complete the survey will have the option of entering a random drawing for one of ten $50 cash prizes. Contact information will be collected for this purpose but will not be shared and will not be linked in any way to survey responses..

The survey can be accessed at the following link:

Please let us know if you have any questions. We hope you will agree to take the survey, and that you will share the link to the survey with other Kenyans living in the diaspora..
