This paper argues for the use of existing institutional frameworks to include women in peace negotiations, peace-building and post conflict reconstruction efforts. Instruments developed by, for example, the UN and AU acknowledge that women have a right not only to representation on structures concerned with peace, but also to equality with men in other spheres. These instruments need to be domesticated and popularised at the local level for they do provide opportunities for innovative reconstitution of the societies.
