This report is based on a population-based survey assessing attitudes about peace and justice in Northern Uganda. For nearly two decades, the Lord's Resistance Army has been in conflict with Ugandan government forces, killing countless civilians and abducting tens of thousands of children and adults to serve as soldiers and sex slaves for its commanders. The Ugandan government's dual approach of military action and mediation to bring peace to the region has had little success. This study represents the spectrum of attitudes and opinions of those most affected by the violence.
