Conflict, Justice and Reconciliation in Teso: Obstacles and Opportunities

Conflict and TJ Special Reports Hits: 892

Given that Teso’s complex history of conflict—which includes the incursion of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) beginning in 2003 constitutes an important
part of Uganda’s national legacy of unaddressed con-flicts, this briefing paper focuses on the potential of traditional justice in the Teso region. It thereby aims to make a contribution to the Beyond Juba Project’s wider objective of building consensus on sustainable peace in Uganda as a whole.
The briefing paper is based on the preliminary findings of research conducted between 10 and 28 August 2008.
It is important to note that these findings are preliminary and more complex conclusions may be revealed as further analysis and research allows. A total of 32 interviews and 7 focus group discussions were conducted throughout the districts of Amuria, Katakwi, Kumi, Pallisa and Soroti in the Teso sub-region of Uganda.
