    This book is the result of a recent field study conducted between May and July 2011 in Uganda by the Uganda Land Alliance.  The ULA’s documentation team embarked on field trips in 8 different country districts (Amuru, Apac, Gulu, Pader, Hoima, Kyenjojo, Mubende and Jinja) to establish the progress women have made vis a vis their rights to land and identified individuals who have made gains in ‘fighting’ for their land rights. These persons were asked to share their stories.

    The detailed experiences captured from the cases have been published into the book

Yet, there is a lack of research on how community rights are recognized in legal and policy frameworks, how they are implemented in practice, and how to include marginalized groups. In 2018–2019, we engaged in collaborative exploratory research on governing natural resources for food sovereignty with social movement networks, human rights lawyers and academics in West and East Africa.
