We have just passed the one-year anniversary of the ongoing peace talks between the government of Uganda and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Both sides agree that this is the best opportunity ever for peace in northern Uganda; a region of over 2-million people that has been largely ignored, while their community and the future of their children is being completely torn apart by this 21-year conflict.

This edition of Field Notes recounts the struggles faced by northern Ugandans in coping with the aftermath of the atrocity in the absence of justice. Drawing upon extensive eyewitness testimonies, the report details the massacre of over 300 civilians in Atiak in 1995, reportedly by the LRA under the command of General Vincent Otti. It explores the politics behind the annual commemoration of the massacre and advances recommendations to meet the dire justice needs of the victims.

This report, Roco Wat I Acoli, provides a much needed analysis of what traditional justice in northern Uganda is, how it is currently practiced and what value it could add. In a seven month study, it documented existing practices of traditional justice in 16 internally displaced persons (IDP) camps. It further examines how some of these rituals have been adapted to promote the reintegration of former rebels.
