Dyan Mazurana discusses remedy and reparations in Uganda

Dyan Mazurana spoke on her 17 years of research in northern Uganda at the Consortium on Gender, Security, and Human Rights on April 27, 2016. She focused her remarks on findings from her  briefing paper, “Making Gender-Just Remedy and Reparations Possible.” She stressed two key findings from her research:

1. Remedy and reparations must account for multidimensional violence against women and girls through restitution, compensation, rehabilitation, satisfaction and guarantees of non-repetition.

2. Equality and non-discrimination are overarching principles that should guide outreach processes, registration and documentation processes, data forms, collection and analysis, remedy and reparation scope and distribution.
