Off to Uganda: Peace and/or/with/versus Justice

Juba peace negotiations

Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army

Dear Readers,

I am off to Uganda today to begin almost three months of research on the effects of the ICC’s investigations and arrest warrants on peace processes and negotiations in Northern Uganda. In particular, I will be focusing on how the ICC’s intervention in Uganda affected the Juba Peace Negotiations between the government and the Lord’s Resistance Army. I will also be measuring the attitudes of different actors on the peace-justice debate. I look forward to sharing some of my findings and experiences with you.

Over the summer, posts may be less regular. I will be stationed, for the most part, in Gulu. While I have been told there will be regular internet, we’ll just have to see. 

Thank you, as always, for your readership and interest in JiC. It has been – and continues to be – an honour and a pleasure to write for you.
