6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Dr. Holly Porter, researcher with the Justice & Security Research Programme at the London School of Economics, will present her research on gender, sexual violence, and local conceptions of healing and justice in northern Uganda. The talk will explore responses to rape in the Acholi sub-region of northern Uganda. Based on five years field work living in northern Uganda and in-depth interviews with almost 200 women, the issues examined lie at the intersection of two ongoing discussions in scholarship and practice: wrongdoing and justice, and sexual violence and rape. This event is hosted by The Gender Initiative.
