John Baptist Onama was born in 1966 in Lacor, Uganda. During the armed conflict which broke out in 1980 he was briefly forced to fight for the Uganda National Liberation Army (UNLA) at the age of fourteen.
He actively took part in a series of military operations against a rebel group and became a “Kadogo”, the battalion’s kid. His experience as a child-soldier lasted for about a year. He then escaped, finding shelter at a Combonian mission, where he returned to his studies. After the war, he finished high school and left Uganda for Padua, in Italy, where he is now a lecturer at the Faculty of Political Sciences of the University.
John Baptist Onama has a rich background in the field of EU Development Co-operation Policies, owing to his direct participation in study missions and project fieldwork experiences in Kenya, Uganda, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sweden, Ireland and Romania.
He has been often called to conduct lectures on EU Project Cycle Management Techniques both in Italy and abroad.
