War in Northern Uganda: background and effects

224, Arts building, Danford Room
Wednesday 27 November 2013 (17:00-19:00)

Speaker: Vincent Oling

  • Jointly organised with the Department of History

This paper aims to discuss the background and consequences of the war in Northern Uganda. I will look at what have been seen as the main national and local-level causes for the war; the course the war took as it developed differently in different regions, and the war’s effects on national and regional services and community life. Moreover, I will consider the economic, ethnic, and class dimensions of the war for Uganda’s society, and the perceptions of the international community.

Vincent Oling is a Ugandan peace activist, and the founder of Uganda’s Concerned Parents Association in the aftermath of the Aboke Girls’ Abduction in 1996, as well as of several other development and post-war reconstruction-focused NGOs. Since 2004 he has been the acting Chairman of Facilitation for Peace and Development (FAPAD) Uganda.
