(p.323) Conclusion
Humanitarian Law in Action within Africa

Jennifer Moore

Oxford University Press

This book has examined humanitarian law in action in Uganda, Sierra Leone, and Burundi. It has discussed the process of reconstruction after the civil war in each country, anchored on international humanitarian law, and how they have grappled with the meaning of transitional justice. It has also highlighted the importance of individual and state responsibility, socioeconomic security, and restored community relationships in the realization of durable peace in all three countries. In this concluding chapter, the insights and lessons learned from the postwar experiences of Uganda, Sierra Leone, and Burundi are outlined, with special reference to retributive justice, restorative justice, and reconciliative justice.

Keywords:   international humanitarian law, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Burundi, civil war, transitional justice, peace, retributive justice, restorative justice, reconciliative justice
