Listening to Youth: The Experience of Young People in Northern Uganda

"The summary report is based on findings from a May 2007 assessment to northern Uganda in which the Women’s Commission for Refugee Women and Children interviewed young people about the impact of war on their lives and prospects for the future, and their recommendations to local, national and international actors. Findings from this study, supported by UNICEF, also contributed to the 10-year Strategic Review of the 'Machel Study' on the Impact of Armed Conflict on Children.

The report outlines immediate action that is required by the international community, in partnership with the Government of Uganda, local organizations and affected communities, to ensure that young people in the north are empowered to contribute to peace and prosperity in their country. Listening to Youth gives voice to young people’s perspectives and recommendations as northern Uganda strives to restore security and rights for all of its citizens—providing critical lessons to the international community in their support to all regions affected by violent conflict."
