Personal Reflections on working with Survivors of Sexual and Gender-based Violence and Torture in Uganda

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

‘Akwate mpola, atuuka wala’ ‘If you walk slowly, you will reach far’
(A Lugandan proverb)
Introduction
This article focusses on my personal reflections of travelling to Uganda and my work with survivors of conflict and post-conflict survivors of gender-based violence and torture. In my work I utilise an ‘action research’ approach combining feminist, participatory and a human rights focus that highlights the voices of survivors and service providers. It ends with a summary that pulls together the main themes that have arisen from this work, as well as some thoughts regarding future directions.
