The U.S. deployment of 100 military advisers to central Africa to neutralize the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) marked an unprecedented effort to combat the notorious group.  Please join the CSIS Africa Program for a discussion on the status of the deployment, an examination of the risks and challenges of U.S. engagement, and the effects of the effort on Ugandan domestic politics and U.S.-Uganda relations.
