The Uganda government is failing in its international and domestic legal obligations relating to the protection of women and girls, and their right to access justice in northern Uganda. Amnesty International is strongly concerned that despite the cessation of hostilities in the conflict in northern Uganda, the incidence of violence against women and girls remains high. The organisation is further concerned that because of many insurmountable challenges and practices in the legal system, there is a culture of entrenched impunity for violence against women.
