This article examines the role that amnesty and traditional practices play in fostering justice and reconciliation in northern Uganda. It aims to contribute to the discussion of Uganda's approach to conflict resolution and reconciliation by examining the tension between the chosen mode of achieving it through traditional reconciliation mechanisms and amnesty and the international outcry for justice. With only the Amnesty Act and the traditional Acholi ceremonies in place, any reconciliation would be hindered by Uganda's failure to adequately address the interests of LRA victims.
