Project: Beyond War Compensation

Ever since the guns went silent in Northern Uganda, the region has seen multiple Government programmes focused on reconstruction and compensation. There were, for example, the Northern Uganda Social Action Fund (NUSAF) with its successor programme, the Peace Recovery and Development Programme (PRDP) as well as a number of compensation schemes for lost property.

Belatedly, these have been accompanied by accountability efforts at both International and domestic levels, using the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Crimes Division (ICD) to bring alleged perpetrators to justice. Despite the significant investments in post war recovery, myriad post-conflict conflicts continue to emerge and occur frequently in the whole Acholi sub-region.

This study identifies key particular areas of interest; inter alia, the land question, livelihoods and gender justice in the post-conflict Acholi sub-region.
