Abstract: The papers that comprise this first publication were presented at the Pan African Conference on Sexual and Gender Based Violence held in Nairobi, Kenya from July 21 – 23, 2008. The title for this first series is drawn from the session within which these papers were discussed at the conference. Some of these pieces first appeared on Pambazuka the authoritative online newsletter as part of a special issue that was dedicated to Sexual and Gender Based Violence. They provide us with a glimpse of the rich discussion and insights that were presented during this conference by focusing on transitional justice. These papers seek to problematise transitional justice mechanisms as viable tools for seeking redress for survivors of sexual and gender based violence, with an emphasis on women. They draw our attention to the complexities of models of this nature but also to the opportunities they avail for seeking meaningful justice. One of the papers deals specifically with the security sector a key site for intervention but one which has been increasingly difficult to penetrate.
