Dynamics of the War to Peace Transition in Northern Uganda

The protracted and brutal armed conflict between the Government of Uganda (GoU) and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Northern Uganda spanned over two decades and left a trail of social and economic upheaval in its wake. At the height of the conflict thousands were left displaced while in Karamoja sub-region, in North- Eastern Uganda, armed cattle rustling stripped many of their most prized assets. With the return to peace after the cessation of hostilities in 2006 and completion of the disarmament process in Karamoja, this study investigates the dynamics of the war to peace transition in Northern Uganda. More specifically, we examine how the households in Northern Uganda have responded to the return of peace and how this is reflected in their livelihood patterns, demand for social services, asset accumulation, demographic and migration trends and their levels of trust for each other and their local leaders.
