Docu dance and children born of war is a 12-month project funded by the University of Birmingham. The project comprises of three specific groups of Children Born of War (CBOW) in Norway, Bosnia, and Uganda and aims at capacity-building and empowerment through;
- Transgenerational and international dialogue
- Exploring creative alternative avenues of awareness-raising
- Amplifying the effectiveness of advocacy of CBOW through confidence building for engagement with media, policymakers, service providers, and politicians
- Building strength through awareness of historical and political contextualization of the CBOW experiences
- Building capacity for CBOW to determine the direction of further engagement through networking opportunities and through supported, yet independent engagement with stakeholders.
This project brings together a network of researchers and practitioners exploring the life courses of children born of war (CBOW) with particular emphasis on children fathered during and after World War II and children fathered during the LRA war in Northern Uganda since the mid-1980s. The project is, therefore, spearheaded by the University of Birmingham in partnership with Alpha Group Austria and Facilitation for Peace and Development (FAPAD).
