This thesis discusses how peace and justice can be pursued simultaneously in a conflict situation. Through a case study of northern Uganda and the rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army I analyze the attempts of the Ugandan government, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the United Nations (UN) to pacify the rebels. I use reports and surveys from northern Uganda, news reports, interviews, and official documents found in online archives of the UN and the ICC. Finding that the long-lasting humanitarian crisis needs to be addressed urgently by external actors, I discuss the possibilities of the UN Security Council and the ICC to deal more efficiently with the situation, concluding that a better combination of carrots and sticks is needed to end the violence. Such a combination must be utilized quickly because time is overdue for a pragmatic end to the suffering of the civilians in the region.
