dc.description.abstractPeace building, consolidation and transformation processes among others have ignored important matters related to human conditions the world over and specifically, it is important to interrogate the extent to which mainstream transitional justice mechanisms have responded to the gender question. Martin argues that processes that produce contemporary transitional justice mechanisms tend to be negotiated by state and non state protagonists in the conflict and by international mediators who are predominantly male with the conspicuous absence of voices of women(Martin, 2006:xi). The study will be guided by three objectives which include, to ascertain and determine the role women play in peace building in Kapsabet division focusing on the 1992 Nandi district land clashes, 0 formulate strategies to encourage the government to involve women in peace- building initiatives and decision-making processes and to ascertain what legal measures should be considered to improve women's participation in Peace-building processes. This study is descriptive research that will adopt a case study research design. Respondents will be drawn from a number of key categories, including government officials in Kenya, church and civil society officials, senior security officials in the police force and provincial administration, professionals working within and outside the target research area such as teachers, community development workers and nongovernmental organization personnel as well as ordinary wananchi (citizens). Care will be taken to ensure age and gender balance. Purposive, systematic and multi-stage sampling techniques will be used with the aim of achieving adequate representation of all the categories targeted for the study. During the study, a total of I SO people will be interviewed and out of this 130 will be women and 20 will he men.
