Over the years, higher education in Kenya has been characterised by gender disparities. A gendered analysis of admissions at University illustrates a low representation of females. But, the Kenyan governments'' policies in higher education, should have attended to this problem. Hence, this book seeks to examine the governments'' gender-related access policy making processes in higher education. This study shows that it is useful to distinguish between different stages in the gender related access policy making process. However, the separations between the stages are not black-and- white and decision-making continues in the implementation and evaluation stages. Consequently, policy making is a complex, iterative process that may not be predetermined from start to finish. This study indicates the intricacy of coming up with policy issues or problems, policy objectives and policy instruments. However, there are challenges in the implementation of gender-related policies thus this book posits competing views in the practices of policy making and implementation in Kenya.
