  • Product Description
 

Kitgum District, northern Uganda has experienced over twenty years of armed conflict with high levels of sexual violence. Few studies have investigated the health and justice responses to such human rights abuses. This book addresses this need. Interviews were carried out with former abductees of a rebel group known as the Lord’s Resistance Army, and with health and justice professionals. The findings reveal that Kitgum still suffers high levels of sexual violence. As a result of their conflict and post-conflict experiences the population experiences severe physical and psychological effects. The state health and legal systems are so poorly resourced, that they struggle to address these survivors’ needs. This thought-provoking book provides a novel analysis of the subject in addition to health and justice policy recommendations. It will be of interest to academics, researchers, policy makers and clinicians. International non-government and development organizations will also find the text useful. All of the royalties from the book sales will be sent to the former abductees and their children born in captivity.
