Back but not home: supporting the reintegration of former LRA abductees into civilian life in Congo and South Sudan

This report examines the experiences of children and adults who have escaped from the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) as they try to reintegrate into civilian life in the DRC and South Sudan. It analyses the community dynamics that affect reintegration both positively and negatively and assesses the effectiveness of past and current initiatives to ease this process. Finally, it proposes concrete ways to enhance current efforts of reintegration.

This report forms part of a wider research project that also seeks to address shortfalls in the understanding of and responses to the protection of civilians. A summary of this report plus another are presented in Safe paths home: protecting civilians and supporting reintegration in LRA affected communities.
