Great Lakes Project - Securing Peace in Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda
Aim of the project is to support the efforts of national governments, the EU, the UN and other international and regional organisations, to build lasting peace and prevent and contain the outbreak of further conflict in the Great Lakes.
ICG provides a source of informed, independent analysis of key trends and developments on the ground in the Great Lakes region, with a particular focus on Burundi and Uganda, and monitors and reports on events in the wider Central Africa region that affect prospects for peace in these two countries.
Practical policy recommendations aimed at supporting the peace process in Burundi, ending the conflict in Northern Uganda, and advancing necessary institutional reforms to improve governance in both countries are given.
ICG mobilises political support - within Burundi and Uganda and the wider Central African region, as well as in Europe, North America and the international community at large - for the implementation of such policy recommendations.
In particular, the project focuses in Uganda on issues in connection with the Juba peace process (LRA), the Security Sector Reform and land-related conflict potential in Northern Uganda, and in Burundi on the internal political crisis and transitional justice.
