The recent, unprecedented viral spread of the video KONY 2012 has raised global awareness of the more than 20 years of terror inflicted on Uganda and other African countries by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and its leader Joseph Kony. "Peace Versus Justice" provides background to the conflict and addresses the complicated issues confronting those attempting to end it.
When the International Criminal Court (ICC) was established, it was championed by human-rights crusaders as a long-overdue end to impunity. But what if the victims of heinous crimes don't want the court's version of justice? Through the prism of Uganda's battle with the Lord's Resistance Army, Peace Versus Justice takes a critical look at the problems of applying Western conceptions of justice to other countries and continents.
