Gender is a general term that refers to girls, boys, women and men. Gender can also be defined to include the roles of males and females in the society. A gender perspective in conflict would look at the way in which the considerations of these different groups of people will be dealt with during the transitional justice process. Female’s experience of conflict and transitions however differ from that of males due to gendered patterns that define different roles and experiences during both conflict and post-conflict.
This conference is a follow up of a conference that had been organized by ICPC under the banner of Kenya transitional justice network to discuss a tool for policy framework for engendered engagement. This tool was geared towards creating an understanding of gender sensitive transitional justice mechanisms and process in Kenya.
