TransConflict is pleased to present the first contributions from our recently-established Collaborative Conflict Transformation initiative, providing a thorough overview of all aspects of conflict in Uganda.
Members of the Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation from Uganda – ably facilitated by TransConflict’s Conflict Collaborative Conflict Transformation Co-ordinator for Uganda, Ms. Mary Murungi – have collaborated to provide a thorough overview of the background to conflict in Uganda, its present drivers and ideas for future conflict transformation efforts.
In order to promote and facilitate further collaboration between peacebuilding academics, practitioners and enthusiasts alike, anybody is able to edit the respective documents in order to contribute their perspective on conflict in Uganda. It is hoped that this living document will help guide and co-ordinate the work of governments, donor agencies, international organizations, academics, peacebuilders and other interested parties.

About Collaborative Conflict Transformation
Using innovative collaborative technologies, TransConflict aims to provide the means through which peacebuilding practitioners, academics and enthusiasts alike can share their respective insights on:
- Conflict Background – the key issues, events and stakeholders that contextualise the conflict in question;
- Conflict Analysis – identify the proximate, intermediate and root drivers of conflict, whilst also employing Johan Galtung’s conflict triangle, in order to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current situation, ;
- Conflict Transformation – concerned with five specific types of transformation, focusing upon the structural, behavioural and attitudinal aspects of conflict – namely, Actors, Contexts, Issues, Rules and Structures.
