Project: Beyond War Compensation

Since the guns fell silent in Northern Uganda, the region has seen a slew of local and international programs aimed at reconstruction and compensation. Despite significant investments in post-conflict recovery, countless post-conflict conflicts continue to emerge and occur frequently throughout the Acholi sub-region.

On 23rd September, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) in Partnership with Amani Institute Uganda disseminated preliminary findings. This follows a data collection exercise conducted in the Acholi sub-region particularly Gulu, Pader, Amuru and Nwoya districts, to establish factors that continue to undermine possibilities for return to social cohesion and how this influences the gender terrain.

The following report details the results from the impact workshop held with district officials, cultural leaders, religious leaders and local residents that participated in the research.
