The problem faced in post-war peacebuilding social recovery is how far Non-Governmental Organisations can transform and rebuild a once destroyed social authority of war-affected population. The multitudes of actors in which NGOs work with, NGOs' own interests, values, principles, codes of conducts and modes of operations have implications on formerly war displaced returnees in respective villages of return. NGOs’ facilitation and representation of one of Africa's neglected and complicated contextual local crises to the international, regional and national levels were slow. This book provides in-depth description of grassroots perspectives of Acholi people in Northern Uganda on roles NGOs played in rebuilding lineage-based social authority and relationships. NGOs played important roles in the interlocution and encouragement of a discourse for rebuilding Acholi lineage-based social authority. However, with NGOs' withdrawal from post-war reconstruction, Acholi people are stuck in a weak social authority with loose social bonding. This book is useful to state and non-state actors, policy makers, researchers, students, scholars, grassroots communities, donors and funding agencies.
