Dr Chris Dolan

Chris and the Refugee Law Project at Makerere University support the traveling exhibition project in Uganda and support academic and community network building and research impact.

Chris is the Director of Refugee Law Project, Makerere University, Kampala, and a Visiting Professor at the Transitional Justice Institute and INCORE, Ulster University, Belfast. He has worked widely with war-affected populations in South Africa, Mozambique, DRC, and Uganda, including refugees and their hosts, IDPs, and ex-combatants. His research on the war in northern Uganda, published as ‘Social Torture’ (2005), is one of the key texts on the LRA-Government of Uganda conflict. The National Memory & Peace Documentation Centre, in Kitgum District, northern Uganda, as well methodologies such as memory dialogues and video documentation of conflict narratives, are outcomes of his work through the Refugee Law Project to create spaces in which memory, memorialisation and truth-telling can be progressed in the absence of national or international truth-telling and related justice processes. He also conducts research, training and global advocacy on the need for inclusive and non-binary understandings of and approaches to gender based violence and victimisation of conflict affected persons.
