During a three-week period of fieldwork, Hélène Flaam joined the team of local researchers in Faradje. APRu has been a research partner of the Conflict Research Group since 2012, and has developed an extensive knowledge on local socio-political and military dynamics and justice needs. For this fieldwork a survey was developed that aimed at getting a better understanding of justice issues and justice needs of IDPs, which have been displaced because of LRA activities. Once the survey was modified and tested on the ground and the researchers trained, 300 respondents were questioned in 12 different sites in the Faradje territory. Together with the support of local authorities and the perseverance of the APRu-team, the research turned out to be a huge success.
