Abstract

This working paper reports findings from a qualitative study on how response measures during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic in Uganda have affected the lives of adolescent young people. The study was conducted as part of a broader research project: Contexts of Violence in Adolescence Cohort Study (CoVAC), with data collected through mobile phone interviews in May-June 2020 with 18 girls and 16 boys (mainly aged 16-19 years) who have been participants in our longitudinal study. The data are contextualized within longitudinal biographical narratives of these young people that have been developed since 2018 and which helped us to illuminate the significance of the crisis in their everyday lives. The analysis shows how effects on young people of the lockdown varied according to gender, location, mobility and socio-economic background, amplifying inequalities and creating the conditions for multiple forms of violence.
