Abstract:Over the years, there has been marginalization of Batwa indigenous peoples in Uganda, despite numerous policy pronouncements and development programs targeting the Batwa as an indigenous group. This group continues to suffer social, economic and political exclusion. The assumption is that poorly targeted policies and lack of focused programs to address their situation, brought about by, among others, historical injustices and economic deprivation, have been the major setback for the development of the Batwa community. This article reviews the policy prescriptions and explores the circumstances that have perpetuated the underdevelopment of the Batwa. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
