The Role and Strategies used by Women in Conflict Management and Peacebuilding in Kenya: A Case Study of Kibera Constituency, Nairobi County (2007-2020)

Abstract:

Violent conflict in Sub-Saharan Mica has been responsible for direct and indirect deaths of civilians during and after general elections. Most countries embroiled in post-election violence arc characterized by poverty, inadequate service provision, poor governance, and political instability. Violence inflicts suffering on all persons in a country, however, women are particularly more affected. During conflict women are sexually assaulted, used as tools of war: victimized, alienated, which would later lead to prolonged emotional trauma, and unwanted pregnancies. The objective of this thesis was to examine the role and strategies used by women in conflict management and peacebuilding following post-election violence in Kenya, a case study of Kibera constituency, Nairobi county. The thesis shows that including women in the negotiation table is of utmost importance if a long-lasting peace and stable country are desired. The target population included provincial administration, members of community based women's groups, women's group leaden, civil society and religious leaders. Questionnaires were used to gather primary data while secondary data were obtained through analysis of documents and reports from relevant offices, libraries, and online materials. This thesis contributes to the existing knowledge on the role of women in conflict management and peacebuilding. It is beneficial to policymakers, security administration, academicians, communities in the Kibera constituency and Kenya at large.
