In this report Mareike Schomerus and Kennedy Tumutegyereize of Conciliation Resources analyse the impact of Operation Lightning Thunder (the military offensive launched in 2008 which targeted the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA)).

The study explains the background to the LRA conflict and the resulting humanitarian and security crisis in the area as a whole.
The authors also look at community militarisation and loss of trust between parties and they explore the appetite for dialogue and political resolution and strategies to end the conflict.  At the end of the paper, there are recommendations on the peace process, security and reconciliation.
