An African hell of colonial imagination?: The Lord's Resistance Army/Movement in Uganda, another story

2008 (English)In: Politique Africaine, ISSN 0244-7827, E-ISSN 2264-5047, no 112, p. 119-139Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The Lord’s Resistance Army/Movement (LRA/M) in Uganda is now world infamous for its violence. As most observers, including academics, have dismissed the LRA/M on moral grounds, they have disqualified the movement as nonpolitical, rebels without a cause other than their allegedly bizarre syncretic beliefs. This article indicates an alternative or perhaps complementary direction. In presenting something of a rarity in the academic literature on the war in Northern Uganda, the article examines actual LRA/M documents, arguing that there is a continuity in the claims and political grievances put forward by the LRA/M throughout the years.
