The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a Ugandan rebel group, has terrorized East and Central Africa for the past 30 years. Initially formed in Uganda by leader Joseph Kony, the LRA is now operational in DR Congo, the Central African Republic and Sudan.

The discussion will convene three Woos who have worked on LRA issues over the past four years. Ledio Cakaj *09 recently published When the Walking Defeats You, A Man’s Journey as Joseph Kony’s Bodyguard. Jon Gandomi *08 and Scott Duncan *09 have both worked with the State Department in Uganda and on the National Security Council staff advising on and coordinating U.S. efforts to dismantle the LRA. The three will discuss where we are today, how the LRA has managed to function as long as it has, and how what they have learned from working on the LRA can be applied to other contexts and policy issues.

 

And SAVE THE DATE for a networking/professional development event on Wednesday, February 8, 2017
