Uganda's post colonial history is characterised by division and conflict. One of the most violent and protracted of the conflicts is the 21 year war in northern Uganda waged by the LRA. The peace talks between the Government and the LRA, were welcomed as a solution to attain sustainable peace in Uganda. However, there were reservations about how the peace consultations were proceeding, and some stakeholders felt that the discussions around accountability and reconciliation may not result in a process that is comprehensive in ensuring sustainable peace in the country. For reconciliation to be effective, the northern Uganda conflict must be placed within a wider national context.........
As the first phase of the Beyond Juba Project (2007-2011) was winding up, the Refugee Law Project embarked on a countrywide
conflict-mapping exercise dubbed: the National Reconciliation and Transitional Justice Audit (NR&TJ Audit) to document all major
current and past conflicts and their legacies in Uganda.
This exercise intends to clarify the transitional justice terrain in Uganda to be addressed under the Beyond Juba Project Phase II. It also feeds into the ongoing Justice Law and Order (JLOS) transitional justice policy development process and seeks to inform government and development partners' programmes related to transitional justice and peacebuilding in Uganda.
Beyond Juba is a Transitional Justice Project of the Refugee Law Project(RLP) and the Human Rights and Peace Centre(HURIPEC), both of the Faculty of Law, Makerere University. The project is generously funded by the Swedish International Development Agency(SIDA) and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
