Doreen Kobusingye, Embedding Land Conflict-Decentralized Land Governance and Conflict Transformation in Uganda

This project (funded by WOTRO) employs a qualitative approach while undertaking ethnography methodology to understand how decentralization influences relations of land governance and how it impacts the legitimacy and authority of local institutions and the resolution of land conflicts in Northern Uganda. The research also focuses on the articulation between local land conflicts and conflicts at higher levels and the impact of interventions on redefining political legitimacy.

On 30 April 2018, Doreen Kobusingye succesfully defende her dissertation Land in Post-Conflict Situations. War Decentralization, Land Governance and State Formation in Northern Uganda at Wageningen University.
