Gender and Generational Analysis of Armed Conflict, Peace and Justice Processes (Sudan and Uganda)- Phase III

Earlier phases funded under project 102081 and 103312 provided field-based data and analysis on facets of specific conflicts in northern and eastern Uganda and South Sudan, and attempted to establish clear linkages between the conflicts.

This grant will allow the researchers working on the same sites to carry out in-depth research on specific issues arising from the earlier work. These are issues of accountability, justice and reparations for survivors of serious crimes and human rights violations; disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) processes in Uganda; and the use of violence, intimidation and marginalization against indigenous minority tribes in eastern Uganda and parts of South Sudan.

The overall aim is to help international organizations, government agencies and nongovernmental organizations fulfill their responsibility and enhance their efforts to protect civilian populations.
