Post-War Disputes and Unity

You are here

Many local disputes may arise in a post-conflict environment such as the one in northern Uganda. As internally displaced persons and families return to their villages, they may dispute ownership of and access to abandoned or occupied land, destroyed housing, or control of limited resources. Further, the ability of families and communities to live in peace may be challenged, for instance, by the return of former combatants to their communities.

One in five respondents (20%) indicated having experienced a conflict within the six months prior to the survey. Conflicts were most frequently reported in Gulu (25%) and Amuru (24%). The survey sought to understand better which types of disputes were arising, and whether and how they were being resolved.
