The empirical study assessed the Effect of Religion on Peace Building in Kaduna State, Nigeria. The integrated peace theory was employed to examine the relevance of positive peace and peace education in the peace building process in Kaduna state. Ethnographic design was adopted for the study. 400 respondents were selected using the Taro Yamane (1967) formula for limited population across three Local Government Areas in the state. Ordinal logistic regression and the significance P.value were employed to measure the relationship between the dependent variable (Peace Building) and the independent variable Religion (proxy for Christianity, Islam, and the African Traditional Religion). The findings from Logit analysis showed a significant relationship between ISM, ATR, and PD in Kaduna state. CNT showed no significant relationship with PD in Kaduna state. The study recommends a synergy between faith-based organisations, religious leaders, and the local community in the peace building process.
