Driver – The Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP)

The Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP) is a
non­profit organisation based in Gulu. 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. Aiming to promote locally sensi­tive and sustainable peace, our
work focuses on the active involvement of communities in research and advocacy
on local level transitional justice issues as a means of giving a voice to
populations which have suffered from conflict for over twenty years. For
