This book explores and reflects on peacebuilding, which emerges from the experiences and realities of women's lives in East Africa, specifically, in Uganda. The author argues that often these community based peacebuilding efforts are responses to women's struggles for survival - both individually and for their families and communities. Carefully analyzing education, women's roles, human rights, conflicts, disability and immigration, this book helps to understand African women's roles in development and peacebuilding in the region. The project will interest development studies and African politics scholars, graduate students, researchers and policy makers.
