I am pleased to announce the publication of a field note by the Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP) titled “We Are All the Same: Experiences of children born into LRA captivity”.
This note documents the views, experiences and hopes of 29 children born into the captivity of the Lord’s Resistance Army and now living in the urban centre of Gulu. As an often overlooked category of survivors, it offers nuanced findings as to the children’s lived experiences and makes key recommendations to ensure their inclusion and redress in transitional justice.
The field note can be downloaded on JRP’s website here: http://

Also, researcher Beth Stewart reflects on the process of documentation and the questions raised by the children who participated in blog on JRP’s website here: http://
