Constitutions concern different levels of organizations, from sovereign countries to companies and associations. A treaty that establishes an international organization is also its constitution, in that it defines how that organization is constituted. Within states, a constitution defines the principles upon which the state is based, the procedure in which laws are made and by whom. Some constitutions, also act as limiters of state power, by establishing lines which a state's rulers cannot cross, such as fundamental human rights. 

The Kenyan constitution acts as a safeguard against human rights violation. The human rights contained in the constitution is the right to life, freedom of speech, association and religion, right to own land or business and several more.
