Uganda: Post-Conflict Transformation


This research project was designed to investigate the extent to which the reintegration process for those returning from the LRA has been coordinated and facilitated by the Government of Uganda and NGOs at the present time. This was done through examining current government initiatives, NGO initiatives, and the current coordination between the two sectors. Special emphasis was given to the role of the Government of Uganda specified in the Ugandan Peace, Recovery, and Development Plan. This study discovered that the Government of Uganda has neglected to take a leadership role on the issue of reintegration. Rehabilitation and reintegration of those returning from the LRA has been almost completely left in the hands of development partners including NGOs. It was determined that a partnership between the government and NGOs is necessary in a post-conflict situation, but the Government of Uganda should take a more leading role in facilitating and coordinating reintegration initiatives within the country.
