ABSTRACT

Uganda: Perfection of Post-Conflict Stability or Ticking Time Bomb?   [open pdf - 508KB]

"This paper uses interviews with Ugandan local citizens, government officials, aid workers, non government organization managers, and U.S. officials to re-evaluate the current degree of stability in Northern Uganda. It provides an alternative framing to the historical narrative, which forces new considerations for understanding the causes of conflict, drivers of the cessation of violence, and explanations for why the present situation in Uganda remains precarious. The findings show that complex social, political, and economic factors cause the region to remain highly susceptible to conflict almost 10 years after the displacement of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), threatening not just Ugandan citizens but also East African stability and U.S. national security interests."
