This research note presents preliminary population-based data on attitudes about peace and justice in northern Uganda. The note is intended to be descriptive and offers limited interpretation. A complete in-depth report will be released in the near future. The preliminary data is based on partial results of a cross-sectional study conducted in eight districts of northern Uganda from April to June 2007. Three teams of 8-16 trained interviewers conducted 2,875 interviews of randomly selected adults in the districts of Amuru, Gulu, Kitgum, Pader, Lira, Oyam, Soroti, and Amuria. Interviews were carried out using a standardized questionnaire. The cross-sectional study was also informed by randomly selected in-depth interviews with adults in the districts under study and by key informant interviews with representatives of local and nongovernmental organizations and leaders of civil society in northern Uganda.
