A five-day workshop on Social Protection from the Perspective of Informal Economy was organised by the Research, Network & Support Facility (RNSF) in Naivasha, Kenya, from the 6th to the 10th of February 2017. The workshop aimed at answering the question: "How could we use social protection mechanisms as a tool for promoting social inclusion of people dependent on the informal economy?". It was focusing on three key dimensions:
  • Legal and Institutional frameworks
  • Access to social protection
  • Community-based systems
The workshop involved researchers, regional experts, public institutions, EU representative as well as CSOs implementing project funded by the EU Thematic Programme "Investing in People". Using the innovative "Write Workshop" methodology, participants shared and reviewed their experiences in order to produce a book containing recommendations, innovative ideas and approaches on Social Protection from the Perspective of the Informal Economy.

In several areas of Africa, when entering the territory of another tribe, one is required to bear a special "passport mask".
This has a profound meaning: to neutralise one's roots and individuality as a sign of respect to those whose territory is being entered. In this there is an ancient wisdom, the sublimation of humanity's neutral essence.
Quoting Aeschylus Agamemnon "Provided they respect the temples and the Gods of the vanquished, then shall the victors be saved".
