Abstract

For nearly the last 20 years, the government of President Museveni in Uganda has been battling the Lord`s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency in northern Uganda. The conflict has been described as one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. Having failed to end the conflict militarily, the government of Uganda invited the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate the activities of the LRA with a view to prosecuting the rebel leaders, who are responsible for the most egregious human rights abuses that have been perpetrated in this conflict. The ICC investigation has resulted in the indictment of the LRA`s five most senior leaders. However, they are yet to be apprehended. Meanwhile, the issuing of the arrest warrants seems to have ended all hopes of resolving the conflict peacefully.
