Kenya Reconstructing?

Building Bridges of Peace: Post-Conflict Transformation Processes As Human Security Mechanisms

By Roseline M. Achieng'

This volume is a product of empirically rich material collected during field research undertaken in 2001-2002 in the Kenyan Rift Valley. Focusing on the strategies of women who are coping with displacement and who are trying to establish new homes in new places, the study adopts a multi-local, agency, and actor-centered approach, and brilliantly shows how, by economic and social networking and by creating new sets of meaning, these women reconstruct and reconnect the places they were driven from, to the places where they now live and work.
