Working on legitimacy  in land governance

This project that resulted in this manual, explored how the Ugandan state legitimizes itself through decentralized land governance, and how interventions by development organizations to support local land registration feed into the legitimacy of the Ugandan state, as well as that of customary authorities. The authors of the manual are Mathijs van Leeuwen, David Betge, Doreen Kobusingye, and Joshua Maiyo.

This project was commissioned and financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands through WOTRO Science for Global Development of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO‐WOTRO). It was developed in collaboration with the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law (KPSRL) as part of the Ministry’s agenda to invest in knowledge and to contribute to more evidence‐based policymaking. Views expressed and information contained in this document are the responsibility of the authors.
