Semester: 
Spring 2017
Application Status: 
Closed
Only open to EPD students

Land is an invaluable resource, representing Ugandans’ means of sustenance and way of life. Yet, its complex administrative processes and potential for generating wealth have created a system of patronage and corruption, harming Uganda’s vulnerable populations--most notably women. This report, compiled from desk and field research for Transparency International (TI) and Transparency International Uganda (TI-Uganda), analyzes the intersectionality of gender, corruption, and land in Uganda. It additionally accesses the potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to combat land corruption. Based on its findings, the report recommends that TI and TI-Uganda strengthen advocacy efforts, sensitize communities, and build its networks and capacities in order to increase its impact.
