The organizers reserve the right to refuse accreditation or admission to the Nairobi Summit if an individual or group has previously advocated, supported, or engaged in violent actions or destructive behavior. Additionally, during the Nairobi Summit, the organizers reserve the right to revoke the name badge, Summit registration and associated materials, and therefore deny access to participants who are in violation of these Principles.
