Human security in borderlands of Sudan, Uganda and Kenya

The report “Human security in the borderlands of Sudan Uganda and Kenya: key advocacy issues from the perspective of a grassroots peace building program for youth warriors” deals with four threats to human security: absence and/or inadequate state protection and response; vicious and recurrent cycles of inter-communal conflicts; heavy presence of small arms and weapons and availability of ammunition; and absence of concrete economic programmes and opportunities, as they present themselves to the communities in the borderlands of the three countries. For each threat, the responses of state, civil society and community actors are described and analysed.
