Beyond War Compensation

This project will improve the understanding of the gender realities of post-war conflicts associated with land acquisition in northern Uganda. With an increased awareness on the potential of local justice mechanisms to deal with post-conflict land contests in northern Uganda, the project will result in a better appreciation of women’s agency in land rights claims in post-conflict northern Uganda. Based on field research in Sierra Leone and Uganda, research outputs include academic publications, documentaries and fieldwork training guides.
