Abstract / Summary
The seventeen-year war in northern Uganda has been characterized by great brutality by the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), as documented in Human Rights Watch’s 1997 report, The Scars of Death: Children Abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army in Northern Uganda, and later publications. The atrocities increased in 2002, but international attention has been distracted by less savage emergencies. A Ugandan peace effort, spearheaded by the Acholi Religious Leaders Peace Initiative (ARLPI), has not broken through the parties’ desire for a military solution.
