Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the role of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in building peace in northern Uganda. It explores the kind of peace that the prosecution of Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebels by the ICC can achieve. The chapter seeks to answer this question by placing the ICC in the context of peace-building operations in northern Uganda. After an overview of the ICC, it provides the background to the LRA conflict and analyzes jurisdictional mandate and required conditions for the ICC to prosecute LRA rebels under the ICC Statute. The crimes allegedly committed by the LRA suspects under the ICC Statute are then reviewed. The chapter also discusses the prospects of the ICC prosecution of the LRA rebels towards the peace-building process in northern Uganda. Finally, it illustrates the challenges to the use of the ICC as a peace-building tool in northern Uganda.

Keywords: International Criminal Court; Lord's Resistance Army (lRA); northern Uganda; peace-building tool; prosecution
