Justice is a conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity. The search for global justice is at the core of human endeavours. The UN SDG 16 proclaims the inter-dependence of peace, human rights, justice and effective governance based on the rule of law as indispensible to realisation of its development agenda. Even though the approach of the international community (international organisations, donor agencies and external experts) to conflict termination increasingly includes the promotion of justice initiatives to aid transition to peace, provide accountability and embed the rule of law, there remains a big challenge on how to balance the competing needs to address victims justice needs and the larger development imperatives, in particular in societies emerging from violent armed conflicts such as northern Uganda. AIU seeks to engage victims and survivors in northern Uganda to engage key justice actors and stakeholders to implement policies and programmes, in a manner that effectively achieve justice for, and promote the welfare of, conflict-affected populations.
