Education and (re) integration of Children Born of War: The case of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Northern Uganda
Boniface holds a Masters in International Peace Studies from the University of Notre Dame, US. For ten years, prior to his postgraduate studies, he worked in northern Uganda with the Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP); an NGO he co- founded in 2004 after completing his undergraduate studies at Makerere University in Uganda. He has also had experience working with civil society actors on peace building and transitional justice within an African context, most notably South Sudan, South Africa and Sierra Leone.
His research examines reintegration through a study of socialization and education in schools and other social institutions of learning. His research also approaches this issue by examining gender dynamics in the treatment of Children Born of war and the cultural notion of socialization among the Acholi people of northern Uganda.
