In this presentation, Professor Bunting will critically reflect on the challenging gendered politics of justice in post-conflict Uganda. Based on collaborative research conducted under the auspices of the Conjugal Slavery in War SSHRC Partnership project over the past five years, her paper analyses the state of gendered transitional justice in Uganda and the role of research in pushing the discourse of gender violence and gender justice. In particular, she is interested in thinking through questions of complex victimhoods and complex perpetrator status.
