MacArthur Foundation Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, LLP We are also grateful to FIDA Uganda, for co-hosting a meeting with lawyers from Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda which explored the themes in this Manual. We are equally grateful to the participants of this meeting for their thoughtful and insightful contributions, which not only demonstrated the vast challenges for lawyers to progress cases relating to sexual violence and other forms of gender-based violence, but also demonstrated the courage and commitment of lawyers and others working on the ground to meeting these challenges.
