Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Abstract The project is about the children's rights violations in northern Uganda due to civil war. Our objective to identify the programs and policies put in place by the government, local and international organizations to protect children rights. We are also interested in analyzing the main stakeholders involved in the implementation of children’s rights policies and how effective these policies are. The project adopts the qualitative research methods however, empirical information was generated from two sources primary and secondary data. Our analysis involves three themes; Government, local and international stakeholders. Here we explain their programs and activities, the challenges and the outcomes, the theory were used link a lens to discuss the analysis and empirical examples were used for better understanding. There have been many interesting findings throughout our work but we shall highlight the main ones. There is lack of adequate inputs for the efficient monitoring and evaluation in the policies, which contribute to the continuity of the children’s rights violations. Despite, having many organisations in northern part of Uganda who fights for children’s rights violations they hardly achieved their objectives and much still needs to be done. The larger implications of our findings, if the policies and programs are not well implemented and children continue to be denied their rights, this may affect the future of the country as the children are regarded as future generation.
