Changing Human Security: Recovery after armed conflict in Northern Uganda 


After more than 20 years of war, peace is returning to Northern Uganda (NU). Gulu University (GU), established in 2002 as part of a strategy for peace and sustainable development in the North, advances a commitment to an interdisciplinary approach to development issues, drawing on ‘the best elements from interrelated and complementary disciplines’.
 
In Sep 2008, the Danish Agency for International Development (DANIDA) approved a 4-yr Enhancement of Research Capacity grant of DKK 9.917.649 for a project titled: Changing Human Security: Recovery from Armed Conflict in Northern Uganda (2009-2012).
 
The project aims to strengthen the capacity of GU to play a useful role in stabilisation and recovery efforts in NU through inter-disciplinary academic and policy oriented contributions to understanding human security transformations and dynamics. 

The ENRECA Gulu project, implemented at GU in NU, is a joint partnership between between the danish universities of South Denmark, Copenhagen and Aarhus, and Gulu University.
