Northern Uganda Conflict Analysis

PRDP I made substantial inroads in assisting the return and rehabilitation of
communities and institutions affected by over two decades of insurgency and armed
hostilities in northern Uganda, but was also fraught with many challenges. Six years
after the guns fell silent, and months into the second iteration of the Peace, Recovery
and Development Programme, the question of whether northern Uganda is truly
at peace remains unanswered in many people’s minds.

Pathways of Justice and Equity in Land Administration and dispute Resolution in Uganda

Land administration and justice systems in Uganda are fundamental for the protection of people’s rights. Yet, there are serious gaps in the regulation of existing and parallel tenure systems, often resulting in contradictory provisions and rules, and the reproduction and reinforcement of discriminatory practices. This affects people’s claims to land, especially those of vulnerable groups like women and youth. The rigorous research and effective advocacy of some Ugandan organizations has contributed to an increased focus on legal pluralism and the complementarity of tenure systems in the country, which can help secure gender equity in the administration of land and dispute resolution systems.

Peace, Recovery and Development Plan for Northern Uganda  2007

Since the 1990s, the Government of Uganda (GoU) has been promoting a development agenda that has led to a reduction in poverty nationally, with visible improvement in many of the welfare indices. The number of Ugandans who are unable to meet their basic needs declined from 56% in 1992 to 38% in 2003 and further to 31% in 2006 with a simultaneous improvement in other indices relating to access to health, education and water and sanitation. However, the welfare indices for Northern Uganda have not improved at the same pace as the rest of the country. Income poverty remains significantly high, literacy rates are low and access to basic services is poor.

Post conflict land insecurity threatens re displacement in northern Uganda

Peace negotiations between the Government of Uganda and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) ushered in relative peace in northern Uganda from
2008. Despite the fact that the LRA leader Joseph Kony has not signed the Final Peace Agreement, improved security has meant that many internally displaced persons (IDPs) can now access their farm land and begin rebuilding their homes. The situationhas, however, remained fragile for some returnees,as well as for vulnerable populations such as the elderly, unaccompanied minors, widows and disabled persons whose needs and rights have been neglected.

Tracing rural-rural migration patterns, we find that communities that receive/host more immigrants (and thus have many coexisting tribes) tend to have more land conflicts than those sending migrants out.
