"The conflict with the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA ) is a regional issue directly affecting the people and governments of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic (CAR), South Sudan and Uganda. Taking lace in remote areas largely devoid of state provision, the LRA conflict continues to cause destruction, abduction, displacement, death and distress for civilians and communities. The following findings and recommendations were generated from research in areas of Uganda, eastern DRC, north-eastern CAR and South Sudan affected by the conflict with the LRA. The research sought to gain a ‘people’s perspective’ on the conflict by involving those most affected, including community representatives, civil society leaders and LRA returnees, in reflection on the conflict and national and international responses to it."
