February 12, 2015 // 9:30am — 11:00am
Rapid population growth and commercial investments are transforming rural Uganda, where 85% of citizens rely on access to productive land for their livelihood. Access to justice in land-related matters is largely out of reach, particularly for the most marginalized groups. To address some of these issues, Search for Common Ground (SFCG) and the Africa Program of the Wilson Center hosted a discussion on the changing dynamics of land tenure and access to justice in Uganda. The discussion featured Albert Gomez Mugumya and Jennifer Ober of USAID’s Supporting Access to Justice, Fostering Equity and Peace (SAFE) Program in Uganda. The SAFE Program is implemented by the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) and SFCG, in partnership with local non-governmental organizations and community groups in 20 of the most conflict-affected districts of Uganda.
