Examining the A-D-R-tistry of Land Dispute Mediators in Northern Uganda

Land wrangles are astonishingly common in Uganda today.  Recent studies show that disputes over customary land - which accounts for 80 percent of the country and nearly all land in Northern Uganda - are on the rise, especially in the wake of recent development schemes and returns from displacement.  With agriculture accounting for 82 percent of the country's labour force and nearly a quarter of its Gross Domestic Product, the prevalence of these disputes threatens Uganda's social stability and economic development.

Institutional Hybridity  an Analysis of Land Tenure Systems and Land Wrangles in Acholi land

In 1953, the British colonial government’s Royal Commission identified the customary land tenure system as one of the foremost constraints on economic development and recommended a gradual substitution of this system with individual land ownership. This led to the introduction of private land ownership based on a neo-liberal principle which runs counter to the principles of customary land ownership, leading to an institutional dichotomy of modern-state systems versus customary land systems in Uganda.

Intergenerational land conflict in northern Uganda: children, customary law and return migration

The experience of forced migration has become common.  Indeed, displacement as a result of conflict is now at the highest levels ever recorded (UNHCR 2015: 33).  But what happens when the conflict that drove people from their homes is over?  Those who return to their communities after conflict find them changed.  Children who grow up in refugee camps or other places of refuge bring different perspectives on life and livelihoods than those of parents who knew peace and a well-functioning community.

Judiciary Presentation to Land Commission of Inquiry

In Uganda, 85% of Uganda’s rural population depends on land for livelihood and survival.  Land is a resource for all regardless of where you are.  Everyone’s life depends on land in one way oranother for food, shelter, water, income, spirituality or culture.  For some individuals, peoples and communities, land is intrinsically related to their identity and standard of living.

Karamoja conflict and security assessment

The karamoja region of north eastern uganda is one of the most marginalised parts of the country.  For decades, it has suffered high levels of conflict and insecurity, alongside low levels of development and serious challenges to individual well-being.  Apart from being affected at certain points by the conflict between the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Government of Uganda, groups living in Karamoja have also been involved in cycles of cattle raiding and counter-raiding.  At various times, pastoralist or semi-pastoralist groups living across the border in Kenya and Sudan have also actively participated in these attacks.  Various strategies have been adopted in the past to address insecurity, resolve conflict and increase development opportunities for the people of Karamoja.  Some successes have been registered, but huge challenges still remain.

This issue of the Africa Peace and Conflict Journal demonstrates that peace is not a onedimensionalphenomenon, built alone by one person or based entirely on a single aspectof human relations. Just as conflict is complex—involving individuals and groups,grassroots and leadership, economic and identity dynamics, historical and future visions,and everything in between—peacebuilding as well engages the myriad of humanexperience.

Land Conflict and Security in Acholi, Northern Uganda

Land security in Acholi has been a focus of international interventions throughout the ten-year period since the end of the LRA insurgency on Ugandan soil.  This has been in response to a number of studies predicting and later identifying massive levels of conflict over land in the wake of long-term displacement of the entire rural population.

Land Conflict Monitoring and Mapping Tool for the Acholi Sub region

In a context of land disputes as a potential major conflict driver, the UN Peacebuilding Programme (PBP) commissioned Human Rights Focus (HURIFO) to develop a tool to monitor and map land disputes throughout Acholi.  The overall purpose of this project is to obtain and analyse data that enhance understanding of land disputes, and through this to inform policy, advocacy, and other relevant interventions on land rights, security, and access in the sub-region.  Two rounds of quantitative data collection have been undertaken comprehensively across the sub-region, in February/March and September/October 2012, along with further qualitative work and analysis of relevant literature.

Land conflicts and their impact on refugee women’s livelihoods in southwestern Uganda

This paper presents the preliminary findings of a study on land conflicts between refugees and host communities in southwestern Uganda and their impact on refugee women’s livelihoods.  Uganda has a long history of hosting refugees that dates back to the 1940s, when it hosted Polish refugees; Rwandese and Sudanese in the 1950s (Holborn 1975:1213-1225).

Land Disputes in Acholiland  A Conflict and Market Assessment

More than 20 years of armed conflict between the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Ugandan government displaced more than 1.7 million people and stalled development in northern Uganda’s Acholiland.  Over the past several years, peace has returned to the region, and more than 90% of internally displaced people (IDPs) have returned to their villages of origin or locations close to home.  The peaceful reintegration of returnees as well as the development of the region is undermined, however, by ongoing conflict over land.

Land or else   Land Based Conflict, Vulnerability, and Disintegration in Northern Uganda

In August 2009, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Norwegian RefugeeCouncil (NRC), supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), commenced a joint study on land and reintegration in northern Uganda.  This study is intended to be a first-step towards an evidentiary approach to understanding land issues in northern Uganda.

Northern Uganda is the scene of one of the world’s most volatile and spontaneous processes of reintegration.  There are approximately 1.1 to 1.4 million people in the Acholi sub-region at the time of writing; 295,000 internally-displaced persons (IDPs) remain displaced either in IDP camps or transit sites.  Approximately 800,000 Acholis have already left the camps and spontaneously returned home over the last three years.

Land Politics and Conflict in Uganda  A Case Study of Kibaale District, 1996 to the Present Day

This chapter examines how the interplay between politics and the competing claims for land rights has contributed to conflict in Kibaale district since 1996.  It considers the case of Kibaale district as unique.  First, as a result of the 1900 Buganda Agreement, 954 square miles of land (mailo land in Luganda language) which constituted 58 per cent of the total land in Buyaga and Bugangaizi counties of present Kibaale district was allocated by the British colonialists to chiefs and notables from Buganda.  It is unique because there is no other district in Uganda, where most of the land is statutorily owned by people from outside that district.  Second, people from elsewhere migrated massively to Kibaale district to the extent that they constitute about 50 per cent of the total population.  No other district in Uganda has so far hosted new settlers constituting such a high percentage of its population.  The chapter argues that the massive immigration and acquisition of land, the existence of competing land rights regimes, and the politicization of claims for land rights have contributed to conflict in Kibaale district.

Land reform: A source unending conflict in Uganda

Land reform generally denotes government measures designed for a relatively equitable redistribution of agricultural land, but actual reform measures can reflect a range of ideological positions.  The political nature of reform is difficult to avoid given the effect of changes in land tenure arrangements on the social relations and hierarchies they embody.  In Uganda, land reforms have consistently hit snags due to the failure to satisfy different Ugandan's needs.

Livelihood recovery in post conflict northern Uganda

A number of questions and concerns are often raised by those seeking to support people's recovery from crisis.  When does recovery start? How fast is it? How long does it take until it is ‘over’? Who isbeing left behind? The answers to these questions matter – but so, perhaps, do the assumptions on which they are based.  The questions encourage the idea that once the cause of a crisis is over, things will naturally start to get better again; that we can use a paradigm of a steady trajectory ‘upwards’ to monitor progress; and that this picture of recovery is the normal state for most people, with those excluded belonging to specific and identifiable population ‘categories’.
