Young Mothers, Marriage and Reintegration in northern Uganda: Considerations for the Juba Peace Talks
Young Mothers, Marriage and Reintegration in northern Uganda: Considerations for the Juba Peace Talks
Erin Baines, Justice and Reconciliation Project
October 23, 2006

The Justice and Reconciliation Project is pleased to announce a new report, Young Mothers, Marriage and Reintegration in northern Uganda: Considerations for the Juba Peace Talks.

This issue of Field Notes focuses on young mothers who have returned from the captivity of the Lordís Resistance Army (LRA). Mothers are a social group that has not figured widely in the justice, reintegration or reconciliation debate in northern Uganda. Yet there are pressing justice-related concerns facing young mothers that must be included in debate on accountability and reconciliation at the Juba Talks. This issue explores how the institution of marriage and cultural norms on gender place an additional burden on returning women with children, and the shortcomings and opportunities presented by informal justice mechanisms.

The Justice and Reconciliation Project is a collaboration of the Gulu District NGO Forum and the Liu Institute for Global Issues. More information on the project can be found on http://www.northern-uganda.moonfruit.com/
