This article challenges this prevailing notion that violence during conflict, flight, and displacement are separate cases but suggests that it forms a continuum of violence. Focusing on Uganda, the article provides in-depth insights of scope, forms, and conditions of violence, and informs about factors impacting the violence. It is eventually argued that the linearity of the prevalence of sexual and GBV during conflict, flight, and encampment reveals a continuum of widening patterns since especially the forms, perpetrator structures, and conditions show a diachronic increase of complexity.
