Kenya's Cereal Sector Reform Programme: managing the politics of reform

The political aspects of reform have been underplayed in structural adjustment programmes. The problematic and inconsistent implementation of Kenya's Cereal Sector Reform Programme (CSRP), it is argued here, is substantially the result of failing to manage the politics of reform. Good political management of the reform process would have included ensuring a clear understanding by interest groups of the likely consequences of liberalisation, and full involvement of the President and Cabinet from the outset in order to create an ongoing reform culture.
