The RLP has undertaken a national conflict-mapping exercise called the National Reconciliation and Transitional Justice Audit, which aims to document ‘all major current and past conflicts and their legacies in Uganda’. The objectives of the Audit are as follows:
- To document from a community perspective all the post-independence armed conflicts in Uganda; and
- To identify and assess the outstanding reconciliation and transitional justice needs related to each of these conflicts.
The Audit emerged out of the conclusion of Phase I the Beyond Juba process, and according to RLP, ‘intends to clarify the transitional justice terrain in Uganda’ that will be addressed in Beyond Juba Phase II. It will also contribute to the ‘ongoing Justice Law and Order (JLOS) transitional justice policy development process and seeks to inform government and development partners programs related to transitional justice and peace-building in Uganda’.
