Produktbeschreibung
The LRA conflict is one of Africa s longest lasting civil conflicts, which has been characterized by abuse of human rights, violence, brutality and desperation in the lives of over a million people in the Acholi region. The main objective of this research is to critically analyse the impact of the Lord s Resistance Army conflict on women in Northern Uganda and how war experiences have transformed and impacted women, and to determine whether it stimulated them to contribute to peace efforts at the grass root, regional and National levels. The prolonged insecurity in the region led to collapse of education, health, communication and commercial activities, resulting in absolute poverty and the underdevelopment of women. Despite the efforts made by the Ugandan Government and many humanitarian organizations to provide for the needs of internally displaced persons including women, peace and reconciliation seem to be hard to achieve due to the failure in concluding the peace talks in Juba, Southern Sudan. I conclude by, emphasizing the impacts of the LRA war on women socially, economically, psychologically, physically, morally, and culturally which influenced their actions for peace.
