The Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP) has played a key role in transitional justice in Uganda since 2005 through seeking to understand and explain the interests, needs, concerns and views of the communities affected by conflict. Through the active involvement of communities in our research and advocacy, we have sought to give a voice to the population which has suffered from this conflict for over twenty years. Our interventions aim at empowering affected communities and victims of the conflict to influence local, national and international policy.
